Desktop Publishing (DTP) Services

Desktop Publishing services from Sourcecode Translation services, ensures that your brochures, manuals and documents are well formatted and aesthetically laid-out. Desktop publishing (DTP)services involve replacing a text in one language with the translation in another language in such a manner that the page layout is preserved.

Desktop publishing services are vital to the language industry because of the way languages change once translated. Our expert desktop publishers will take into consideration:

  • Word swells – translations out of English often expand in volume by between 10% and 25%
  • Punctuation formats – quotation marks are different depending on the country targeted. For example, in French, « » angular quotation marks would replace “ “ and in German „ ” double quotation marks would be used
  • Fonts and character sets across languages and platforms
  • Numerical formats – can change from one language to the next. For example, with currencies ,598.00 in English would be .598, 00 in Spanish and 598, 00 in French. In China a yyyy-mm-dd date format is used, in France dd-mm-yyyy, in America mm/dd/yyyy, and in Germany dd/mm/yyyy
  • Page layouts – languages such as Arabic and Hebrew are written right-to-left and thus require completely modified page layouts and many more…

We cut your time to market significantly by performing desktop publishing services in-house after the translation has been completed. Having our designers in-house provides us with absolute control over quality and the delivery time schedule. Furthermore, our designers are able to communicate with our project managers seamlessly and in real time, exchanging ideas and feedback about any given project. Our desktop publishers are trained in the translation process and work hand-in-hand with translators, editors and proofreaders to ensure that the final product reflects the most accurate and up-to-date version of the text.
