DESKTOP PUBLISHING IN TRANSLATION

WHY OUTSOURCE YOUR DTP NEEDS?

Desktop Translation Services

When you order a translation of your document, manual, or book, you don’t want to receive just plain text. But why waste time formatting and preparing it for publication yourself when you have a vendor you can trust who can do it all for you?

Many documents that we receive for translation from our clients have non-editable text, images, and drawings with text, or they have been created using specialised software such as InDesign or AutoCAD. This can cause difficulties for a translation company to prepare an exact quote and translate such documents. A professional OCR and preparation of the layout for translation with CAT tools is therefore required here.

And then after the translation has been completed, further problems may still occur. A translated document can often look very different from the source text – with possibly a much longer or shorter word count, or an entirely different character set  or even reading direction. Most texts, therefore, require an additional DTP pass after translation.

This can be very time-consuming so why not outsource this service at an affordable price to a professional DTP team and save yourself a lot of time and effort in the process?

Many companies appreciate the convenience and cost-efficiency associated with this option and have already successfully outsourced their DTP needs to Translators Family.
