Multilingual desktop publishing (DTP)

Multilingual desktop publishing (DTP)

What is multilingual DTP?

Desktop Publishing (DTP) is the set of computer processes used to produce documents for printing. The quality of communication necessarily requires a graphic phase, often complementary to a translation.

Depending on the language, typographical standards vary, and some special characters, accents, and types of alphabets can impose limits in the creation of documents and greatly complicate the work of a graphic designer.

 

Our multilingual DTP service

To overcome this limitation, Optilingua International's translation and language service agencies bring together experts who can translate your content using DTP. Our graphic designers deal with the multilingual DTP adaptation of all your media, regardless of the type of document (technical, scientific, commercial, medical, legal, etc.), and the languages targeted. For example, we are able to offer you multilingual DTP adaptation to, or from, Asian languages such as Chinese, Japanese or Korean.

We can adapt the documents according to your needs in accordance with the intention of the original medium, taking care to apply the standards of the target language (line breaks, fonts, direction of reading, format, etc.).

Our professional graphic designers and translators, specialising in multilingual DTP all work in their mother tongue, guaranteeing you a quality product, ready to be published. 

 

We can translate your technical and advertising documents using the following DTP software:

  • Adobe InDesign
  • Adobe PageMaker
  • QuarkXPress
  • FrameMaker
  • Microsoft Publisher
  • Adobe Illustrator
  • CorelDraw
