Do you have a complex designed brochure or an extensive client catalogue which you would also like to use in several languages? In order to save you further layout work and design efforts, we offer you the solution of our desktop publishing services. It is very important to foresee that desktop publishing is not a one-to-one translation and a mere translation of the text quickly stretches the limits of the layout. This is why desktop publishing or DTP is an integral part of today’s work, which encompasses a comprehensive work with various documents, including texts, pictures and an individual layout.

DTP – our formatting secret

With our inhouse-DTP, we have created the right infrastructure to closely interlock text and layout. Since we work with a variety of software, we can, for instance, easily import and subsequently export brochure texts from InDesign to and from our translation programs. The documents are prepared in formats which do not cause any formatting or conversion problems when printed. Moreover, we can ensure compliance with your corporate design during the translation and the entire process and implement all your requirements regarding graphics and design.

Our services for your corporate design

When translating a text, the character count, sentence lengths, paragraphs and page breaks can change significantly. Imagine how these, often enormous, differences can influence the layout of your document. Moreover, many fonts and text formats are quickly stretched to their limits when translatiing to typographically challenging languages, such as Chinese or Arabic. Our answer to these problems is called desktop publishing and is reliably implemented for you by our experts. As a result, you not only secure the layout of your document, but also your corporate design.

Our team of translators and experts, editors, IT-specialists, proof-readers, quality managers, terminology specialists and project managers always and comprehensively endeavours to satisfy you 100% and aspires to implement your project with the highest standards.

Desktop Publishing FAQ

What is Desktop Publishing?

Desktop Publishing is a process of digitally preparing, adjusting and editing printable materials, such as booklets, manuals, journals, etc. It is often used synonymously with typesetting.

Why do I need Desktop Publishing Services?

Desktop Publishing services are needed to adjust the layout of a text that has been translated. When translated, texts almost always become shorter or longer, and may change the reading direction. As the result of this, the old layout becomes unsuitable, and adjustments need to be made. DTP services are also used when you have an original (non-translated) text and just want to place it in a booklet, guide or any other printable material.

What are the advantages of Desktop Publishing?

The main advantage of Desktop Publishing is that your text becomes visually pleasing and easy to read, which is essential when producing graphics-heavy materials. Even books with no visuals require layout management to be readable, otherwise the text becomes just a wall of letters.

What is Desktop Publishing software?

Desktop Publishing software is software that used to adjust the layout of graphic meaterials, such as guidebooks, as well as to combine text and images for such materials. Common DTP programs include InDesign, AutoCAD, and Adobe Illustrator.
