Desktop Publishing

Desktop publishing ensures that translations replicate the original format in every language. An accurate translation from one language to another can result in a higher number of words. A longer text can disrupt carefully formatted pages and visual presentations. Our desktop publishing team of graphic designers fit your text to your page in any language.

What Is DTP Translation?

Desktop publishing (DTP), is the creation of documents by graphic designers using page layout software to format and/or duplicate page layouts with text, graphics, images and tables. The result is a high-quality text and image file that is ready for print publishing or digital display. Desktop Publishing Translation is the adaptation of design and format to achieve the same result in your target language(s).

Traditionally associated with typography and printing, DTP software generates graphics for presentations, brochures, manuals, point-of-sale displays, marketing material packaging and advertising.

Global Voices is experienced in translating these materials for our wide range of clients, but our service and commitment does not end there. Fitting the translation to your visual language and format is where Desktop Publishing Translation is used. It ensures adhering to your design and maintaining consistency by simply and effectively managing layout.

Global Voices uses software such as InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop, PageMaker, Corel Draw, FrameMaker and QuarkXpress. The design process is managed by your Account Manager, who liases with the DTP team to replicate your design and return your completed translation in the format you need in the timeframe you require.

Is Desktop Publishing Translation necessary for me?

Whether your project needs DTP translation depends on your objective. If you want the text to represent the original in design and layout, you should consider this service.

Translations from one language to another can vary in length by up to 40 percent. In a specific layout, this can affect visual layout. DTP Translation guarantees that your projects look balanced and communicate the same visual message in all target languages.

Global Voices makes sure your designs are consistent no matter how much translated texts vary in length, and creates a professional look across the board.
