Publishing & DTP

When you require translations for certain types of documents — for example newsletters, brochures, books, business cards, greeting cards and so on — that have been carefully created using Desk Top Publishing (DTP) you will certainly want to preserve the look and feel of the original document, retaining the layout, font and formatting.
You will certainly wish avoid another round of copying and pasting texts into your layouts and designs, into foreign languages and avoid introducing errors that will be cost more time to review again and labour intensive to fix.
We can handle all the major design and DTP software formats in their native form, and translate the content and provide you with fully formatted versions of your original files in any language you want.
We can provide can also provide DTP services where it is necessary to replacing text in one language with the translation in the target language in such a manner that the page layout of your publication is preserved, including the typography and artwork.
We also prepare original source documents for translation by removing and reading some features that make the text flow or story layouts difficult for translation and fix these up and review them following translation to ensure the documents are complete and story segments are not broken.
While designs are being produced and content is being authored, we can define a set of simple rules for you to follow to ensure rapid post production of finalised and translated publications. We can even work from your original word files, translate these and rapidly insert the translation into the final design while both the content and the design are still a work in progress, giving you a rapid turnaround time for publishing documents to very short deadlines and saving you the extra hassle of copying and pasting translations over and over again into the source templates for each language.
Our DTP service has the capacity to work within all major desktop publishing software including Adobe PageMaker, InDesign, Photoshop, Quark Xpress, and so on. We can produce translations in a variety of formats and different media. We provide translations as in electronic formats for both Windows and Mac platforms for several applications. We can produce EPS files, PDF files, JPEG files or vector graphics files to make your copy ready to use including print, web, or mobile platforms.
Our DTP team combines their work with final LSO (Linguistic sign off) to ensure a high grade publishable end product.
