Multilingual Desktop Publishing Services

Our graphic designers—our desktop publishing team—are professional linguists. Translations ABC has a professional desktop publishing (DTP) department focused solely on delivering the highest-quality multilingual product possible.

The last step to YOUR product’s perfection.

A story: a colleague wanted a simple 5”×4” post card done, with various languages—correct words supplied to the graphic designer—on the front of the card. When it was time to proof the card, it was a disaster! The double-byte characters were corrupted, languages that are meant to go from right to left (bi-di)—didn’t. In fact, they had been flipped, so that everything was backwards—and going in the wrong direction.

The graphic designer was great as a graphic designer, but was not a linguist so did not even realize that the languages were not correct.

You do NOT want that to happen to you.

Or this:

You have a deadline for a multilingual project. You got a great price from a large firm. The project is delivered on time—great! Before heading off for a relaxing weekend away from the office, you take a cursory look at it before sending it off.

You know that sinking feeling one gets when something is wrong? Terribly, terribly wrong? Corrupt characters, wrong font type, wrong titles under the images, images facing the wrong way for your bi-di languages…

Disaster! Time to cancel weekend plans—again.
