English term or phrase: kerning
Definition from FontShop USA:
Kerning refers to the horizontal space between individual pairs of letters (a kerning pair). Fonts that are properly kerned appear evenly spaced without large open gaps of white space between characters.

Example sentence(s):
  • Optical kerning adjusts the spacing between adjacent characters based on their shapes. Some fonts include robust kern-pair specifications. However, when a font includes only minimal built-in kerning or none at all, or if you use two different typefaces or sizes in one or more words on a line, you may want to use the optical kerning option.
  • In the digital typefaces used today, the space between letters is controlled by a table of kerning pairs, which specify spaces between different letter combinations. Princeton Architectural Press
  • The amount of empty space between letter pairs 'wants' to be equal, and that's the goal of hand kerning your type. Your mind reads the words your eyes see. When there is visual and spatial continuity between all the objects (letters) it's easier to read, the better things look, and the more you can concentrate on the meaning of the words, rather than the minute 'visual hitches' that are created by poor kerning. - Tim Donahue

Definition from
spatiului dintre anumite perechi de litere (caractere) in cadrul aceluiasi cuvant (sau linie)

Example sentence(s):
  • Unele combinații de caractere sau perechi de litere și de multe ori trecerea de la o majusculă sau o minusculă au ca rezultat o spațiere neuniformă, neplăcută. Kerning-ul este ajustarea spațiului dintre anumite perechi de caractere. De ce ne-ar păsa? Pentru că uneori apar în textele noastre spațieri deranjante (mai ales în titluri sau la dimensiuni mari ale fontului), iar ajustarea acestor “scăpări” aduce un aspect uniform și plăcut ochiului. Programele specializate (cum ar fi Adobe InDesign sau Quark Xpress) oferă soluții avansate pentru ajustarea spațierilor, inclusiv soluții automate (optical sau metrical) dar de multe ori ajustarea manuală, la ochi, este necesară. - -
