What is Desktop Publishing?

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

A Complex Process

This process of desktop publishing within the translation industry demands great attention to detail. For instance, because languages have different length 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. For example Spanish language is considerably longer than English. Challenges such as these underscore the importance of hiring a translation firm with a proven track record of high-quality work in the area of desktop publishing.
