Desktop Publishing

Putting it All Together

» Our Services » Desktop Publishing Services

Desktop publishing (DTP) is a core service we offer to our clients and a crucial part of the translation process. DTP involves the creation of documents using graphic design software, such as InDesign, Photoshop, Microsoft Word, and many others. At Avantpage, we have the ability to recreate and format foreign language materials both for print and online applications, while preserving the original message and graphical style. 

A Complex Process

The process of desktop publishing for multilingual applications demands great attention to detail. For instance, because languages have different lengths and typographical characteristics, translating documents can potentially undermine the original design. Artwork may be inadvertently repositioned, truncated, or even lost altogether.  

To further complicate the process, some languages take up more space than others. Spanish, for example, is considerably longer on the page than English, while Chinese is much shorter. Design and layout challenges such as these underscore the importance of hiring a translation firm with a proven track record of high-quality work in desktop publishing.
