Desktop Publishing

We are proud to offer you a qualified service in multilingual desktop publishing (DTP).

DTP is the process of placing text and graphics (including tables, graphs, pictures, etc.) on a page according to a certain layout and spelling rules. Modern DTP programs allow the user to arrange the text and graphics on the screen before actually printing the document. Thus the user can see what the printed document is going to look like.

Our company has extensive in-house multilingual DTP capabilities in both Windows and Mac OS. We provide a whole range of services needed to transform the original document into the translated “ready to print” format. We can produce standard web-ready documentation, as well.

We offer:

  • Print design in the main text and graphics editors: QuarkXPress, CorelDRAW, Corel PHOTO-PAINT, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe InDesign, Adobe FrameMaker, Adobe PageMaker, Adobe Acrobat, Adobe FreeHand, Macromedia Flash MX, MS Word, MS Excel, MS PowerPoint, etc.
  • Handling of graphic elements
