Multilingual DTP and Typesetting Services

What is Multilingual DTP?

Aesthetics play an important role in the success of content, so the look of your translated materials needs to be every bit as good as the original for consistently impactful global reach. Formatting errors in translated documents can have negative effects on the impact of your product and brand, and the consequences of misinterpretation can be damaging and far-reaching. With special characters, right-to-left scripts and text expansion and contraction coming into effect, the risk of non-specialists completing this work cannot be understated.

This is where our reliable and highly experienced in-house multilingual Desktop Publishing (DTP) services come into their own, combining technical talent with linguistic knowledge to reproduce your documents with precision and care. By coupling this expertise with subsequent rigorous quality checks, we deliver documents with quality and style, whether a brochure, a manual, a label or a product catalogue.
