Desktop publishing is all about preparing your documents for printing and other purposes. Our desktop publishers ensure that the translated texts get the right formatting and graphic design for use in brochures and other printed materials. Desktop publishing tools are also used when you want your translated text to have the same format and layout as in the source files. Our DTP team uses high-end desktop publishing applications that streamline the translation process and ensure print-ready documents that are additionally verified by our quality assurance team.

In this way, you get translations that have all the right formatting, fonts, typesetting and layout. Desktop publishing is a vital addition to our translation services! Discover our DTP services, and order the one that meets your needs.

    SIMPLE DTP SERVICES

    1

    If you need to translate a non-editable file into a different language and it has a relatively simple layout or structure (no complex tables, diagrams or columns), then simple desktop publishing services are all you need. They work equally well when the fidelity to the source file is of little importance. In this case, diagrams, technical drawings and similar elements can be translated using a legend, and the layout will be reproduced in a simplified way allowing for comparison between the corresponding segments in the source and translated texts.

    ADVANCED DTP SERVICES

    1

    If you can provide the source file along with the component files used to create the document in some form of graphics software, we can accurately reproduce the layout, colours, backgrounds and other elements of your document, meaning that the translation will be structured like the original. We can work with almost all file formats to ensure the project is of the highest quality. Simply put, the outcome looks exactly like the source; the only difference is that the content has been translated into another language.

    Graphical processing of documents

    1

    Desktop Publishing (DTP) involves all the processes related to the preparation of a text for publishing in other languages, both in print and online. It also covers the conversion of increasingly popular non-editable documents into an editable format. This speeds up the translation process while at the same time enabling future editing and updating.

    Skrivanek’s DTP department offers the graphical processing of documents (such as guides, manuals, catalogues or leaflets) in many languages. Our experts make sure that, following the translation into your choice of language, the layout of the text matches the original document as closely as possible. If you want, you can also receive editable versions of your materials for implementing future changes on your own, without the need to involve a graphic designer.

    Advantages of advanced DTP:

    1
    • The translation can faithfully reflect the structure of the original document, including all its graphical elements, such as photographs, Excel charts, screenshots, backgrounds, colours, etc.
    • The file with the translated content is editable using graphics software (e.g., Photoshop, InDesign etc.), allowing for future updates and changes.
    • The resulting document looks professional, allowing you to showcase it to your business partners.
    We are able to accurately reproduce the layout of your document!
