Our Desktop Publishing Services


Our multilingual typesetting service involves adapting your layout to accommodate your newly-translated text, taking into consideration text expansion and contraction all the while respecting language and grammatical nuances.


Our design experts and translators work together to ensure that graphics are tweaked to suit local cultures. For example, our Chinese translators will ensure the colours used in your marketing materials are considerate of local symbolism.


The desktop publishing solutions that we offer also cover media types such as video and animation. Our specialist team can amend graphics and text in dynamic content to ensure your multimedia fits the local language and culture.


Our in-country translators are familiar with local norms and regulation. So if you want to export your food products to Japan, our DTP experts will ensure that nutritional information tables are adapted to comply with local requirements.

Why Choose Us?

With years of experience in providing DTP services, we know that it’s not just a simple case of ‘copy and paste’. The number of characters of a translated text can vary up to 30% compared to the original, meaning our graphic designers work hard to adjust the formatting of your multimedia to fit the newly-translated wording.

Our experts can handle even the most complex right to left languages such as Arabic, and double-byte character languages like Chinese. Yet, the wording isn’t the only thing that needs to be considered.

Our in-country graphic designers, familiar with local norms and cultures, modify your designs to suit the local audience, whether that means using blue instead of red, or displaying text in a specific format to comply with local legal requirements. We ensure your designs have the same impact overseas as they do in your home markets.

How Does DTP Work?

Desktop Publishing is a two-step process. First, the original file is sent over to one of our expert native-speaking translators who will translate the content from the source to the target language.

Secondly, the translated document is sent over to one of our in-country graphic designers, who will liaise with the translator and modify the graphics to not only fit the new text but also adapt its visual elements to suit the local culture.

Your desktop publishing translation will be formatted by someone familiar with the specific software program you need, with access to many Adobe Suite and Microsoft programs to suit the needs of all the page layout translations we take on.
