More about Lorem Ipsum

What is lorem ipsum?

In short, lorem ipsum is used as a placeholder or 'dummy' text before final text is created. In print layouts, web design or graphics, lorem ipsum is a golden standard for placeholder text. Its main purpose is not to distract from layout. Lorem ipsum is generated from 'latin like' words, which doesn't have any meaning as a sentence. Flake tools lorem ipsum generator is free to use. You can generate any length of lorem ipsum that you want.

Lorem ipsum usage

As said before, lorem ipsum is golden standard for placeholder text. Lorem ipsum can be used by almost every company for designing, printing or programming. Dummy text is suitable for almost every project. Lorem ipsum comes handy instead of typing your own content, mainly because you do not have to create it yourself and in addition it does not mean anything. Generate text online, copy and paste.

Origins of lorem ipsum

The lorem ipsum is very, very old. It resembles latin, whole sentences looks like from foreign language, but without meaning. Lorem ipsum starts with 'lorem ipsum dolor sit amet' and it can be found in one of books which Marcus Tullius Cicero wrote. The book is called "De finibus bonorum et malorum" which can be translated to "On the ends of good and evil". The book was published around 45 BCE. There is sentence in the beginning of this book, which you might find very familiar: "Neque porro quisquam est qui dolorem ipsum quia dolor sit amet, consectetur, adipisci velit...". The english translation is "There is no one who loves pain itself, who seeks it and want to have it, simply because it is pain...".

This sentence was used as a placeholder somewhere, and suddenly lorem ipsum was born. Lorem ipsum starts with the sentence and the rest is not from Cicero's book, neither are latin. Words are just pseudo or fake latin.

The idea behind

Let's imagine that you have layout of webpage and you don't have final texts yet. You can start typing some random texts, but that doesn't give you feeling like the text is looking real or suitable and will drag your attention away from the fact that you are actually designing a webpage layout. Lorem ipsum as a pseudo-latin text suit well for the purpose and because it does not mean anything it does not drag your attention away. Thats how lorem ipsum can help you stay on right track while designing layouts.
