Multilingual Desktop Publishing Services

iTi can have your translated documents professionally prepared in many of the most popular software packages used today. This service is useful for clients who need their multilingual documents prepared for publication.

ITI Desktop Publishing

While desktop publishing services are popular for files such as brochures and advertisements that require technical formatting, it is also popular for typical documents such as a contract, a form, or a sales sheet!

When translating to or from English, text tends to expand or contract by up to 20%! This requires some detailed desktop publishing skills to ensure that the documents of any language match in format.

Another thing to consider is working with language fonts. Professional desktop publishers and translation agencies already have hundreds of language fonts downloaded and ready to go. Plus, if a graphic designer is altering a document in a foreign language but doesn’t speak that language, they are more likely to make awkward errors such as line breaks in the middle of a word.

Our desktop publishers are multilingual and familiar with international language fonts. Let us help you make sure your text is accurately converted when working in different languages and software packages.
