Desktop Publishing and Formatting

For documents, desktop publishing (DTP) comes after the translation process is complete. Desktop publishing makes documents, whether digital or hard copy, look good and appropriate in the localized version.

Desktop Publishing and Formatting

Desktop publishing (DTP) can be critical in a translation project since many involve typesetting, graphics, and layouts. Most translations require some level of DTP to guarantee that the final product will look as similar to the original document as possible. For documents with lots of graphics and complex layouts, desktop publishing is essential in order to ensure that the translated text will fit the original layout and design. If this step doesn’t occur, even an excellent translation could look unprofessional.

Our desktop publishing team is trained in the translation process and they work hand-in-hand with translators, editors, and after-format proofreaders to ensure that the final product reflects the most accurate version of the text.

Whatever the format, we will deliver the final translation in the same format as the original document. Even if the client only has an image file, our team will recreate the original file format.
