Desktop Publishing

Do you need to modify the design, format or images of your documents?

At FIDUS Translation, we offer Desktop Publishing services (DTP) so that the final visual result of your document is as expected regardless of the changes that the target language may produce. There is no print, brochure, leaflet or any other creative document that our graphic design specialists can’t handle.

We always take care and make sure to assure…

The exact word expansion

When translating the sentences can expand up more than 20% in some languages. At FIDUS we will always try to use the same number of words in order to not to change the layout.

The number formats

We will always localise the currency, times, and dates as they change from one language to another.

The correct direction

Some languages (Arabic…) are written right-to-left. Our typesetters and designers will make sure to keep the layout as close as possible to the original. 

The layour breaks

One of the most common problems of the DTP translation is the final layout issues. Sometimes it ends up with too much content to fit into the same place. However, we will make sure that the final result looks professional and fits perfectly.
