Desktop Publishing (DTP) Layout and Design | Post–DTP Quality Checks – Content Check
Nordic-Baltic translation company Baltic Media Ltd is a one-stop language services provider and provides not only text translation, but also Desktop Publishing (DTP) services for text and images, and then prepares them for submission to the printing house or online publishing. To put it simply, all things are done at one place. Thus you will save time and money!
Translation agencies usually also offer their clients to layout the translated material, so that it looks like the original, but in a different language.
This Desktop Publishing work is generally much cheaper than what an advertising agency charges for the same work. The bottom line, of course, is that it is much cheaper to pay your translation agency to do the layout of the translated document than to pay the advertising agency to do the same job.
The translation agency's layout designers are also used to working with foreign languages and they can easily identify and solve any font problems.
So that will be our tip:
Pay the advertising agency to create the original but pay the translation agency to do the layout of the translated material. It is both cheaper and "safer".
