It depends on what you want to do with it really.. this is where more information than just the title really does come in handy...

If it's just to print one copy, I'd just set it to print 2 onto 1 page (multiple 'tab') onto a landscape.

Sorry, it's for printing a booklet. I've designed it in InDesign, made an A4 PDF, but they also want to print it in A5. I assume there'll be a few hundred copies.

Thanks!

The printers can generally scale down the book for printing from a4 to a5 - the percentage is 71% in size, if you wanted to output it yourself.

If you're using InDesign CC 2019 - there's the Adjust Layout options https://helpx.adobe.com/ie/indesign/using/adjust-layout.html
You can then set the document to A5 size using this feature.

And you can resize the PDF to A5 size using Acrboat Professional - https://www.techwalla.com/articles/how-to-resize-a-pdf-file

The percentage is always 71% https://www.papersizes.org/magnification-scale.htm
