Desktop Publishing DTP (desktop publishing) is a process supplementary to the localized product so that in the localization of products for foreign markets, such factors as cultural and linguistic group tastes must be considered because the preferred appearance of graphics, colors, icons, images and even fonts and bullets can be culturally dependent. Therefore when you choose a partner to localize your valuable publications, you should be sure to find one that has the right experience and skills to produce a perfect local version of your original product.
Our DTP experts have studied the diverse local market tastes and preferences in depth and have gained outstanding experience in all phases of the content life cycle, i.e., design, formatting and printing. When will your translation project require DTP?
If you need to translate a PDF, a booklet, a manual or any other type of document with images or a preset (?) layout, you will need to use distributed transaction processes (DTP) services to reconstruct it according to the target language layout. When you deliver a document that has a formatted layout, that layout will be damaged if the translation is simply pasted back. That's because translated text expands (sentence length often increases). To preserve your document's original layout and formatting, DTP work is required to correctly insert the translation back into your document, adjusting the layout accordingly. Because Arabic is a bidirectional language, such as Farsi, Urdu and Hebrew, and as with all needs special handling because the text usually originates in a Latin-alphabet source document. This is where our role becomes crucial, by helping to flip the layout of the whole document, not an easy task for less- experienced vendors or even nonnatives. In short, when you need to flip a layout, our DTP services are there to help.
