WHEN IS DTP REQUIRED IN A TRANSLATION PROJEC?

You may already be using Desktop Publishing (DTP) Services whenever you translate a brochure, PDF and any other type of document with a predetermined layout or images. DTP is usually done during or post translation, ensuring the translated document look identical to the source document’s layout. Whenever we deliver a translation that has a formatted layout in the source document, we do not simply paste in the translated text in the original layout. As translated text usually expand (often by 30% in a sentence), it would look chaotic if no DTP work is carried out on it. In short, our Desktop Publishing (DTP) Services would retain the original layout and formatting of the source document when we lay in the translated text, adjusting the layout carefully.
