Multilingual Desktop Publishing for Print & Web

We provide desktop publishing (also known as DTP) services for our translation clients. Do you need to translate a catalogue, magazine or packaging? Whether it’s for print or web, chances are your original document has been created in a specialised software like Adobe Indesign.

Here at AJT, we can translate your Indesign file directly (using the IDML format), and then carry out the final layout work to ensure the translated documents follow the same style guidelines as the original document. You simply send us the file package including fonts and links, and we provide you with a print and web-ready translated file.

Our graphic designers are experienced at working with multilingual documents. Here’s how our process works:

  • Translation

    Translation by a professional translator – a native speaker of the target language

  • Editing

    Proofreading by a professional translator – a native speaker of the target language

  • DTP

    Layout work carried out by a professional graphic designer with experience in multilingual DTP

  • Final check

    Final check by project manager and translator

  • Delivery to client

    Final round of amendments, if necessary

Our DTP service is charged at an hourly rate. Would you like to find out the cost for the translation and layout work for your document? Contact us now and we’ll be happy to send you a quote. If your files are very large, we can provide an upload link on request.
