DTP Translation and it’s importance in the translation & localization of graphics and visual documents

Desktop publishing or DTP translation is a vital service used by businesses, organizations, and institutions to create visually appealing and culturally appropriate printed documents. Desktop publishers create layouts for documents that will be viewed electronically (computer/mobile/ipad etc) rather than printed. Irrespective of the distribution channel, having aesthetically appealing documents is essential.

How does DTP help in the translation of visual documents?

1. Quality Retention

Graphics, formats, and so on are all messed up when documents are translated from one language to other languages. Graphs, photo captions, forms, bulleted lists, spacing, paragraph breaks, and other illustrations or formats are frequently repositioned, truncated, or lost during translation.

This can have an impact on the printed material\’s quality and purpose. DTP is widely used in the translation of visual documents to avoid such a problem.

2. Customized Documents

Another way that DTP can assist with the translation of graphics and visual documents is by using appropriate colors for the translated document or graphic. All businesses and organizations must use culturally relevant colors and images. Insensitivity to color or image can cause uproar and harm any organization\’s reputation. Colors, images, graphs, and other elements can be altered using DTP to avoid offensive or harmful presentation.

3. Improved Work Efficiency

DTP translation aids in the creation of a streamlined workflow between designers and translators. Organizations typically use their native or primary language to create a variety of visual documents such as leaflets, brochures, and posters. Conventional translation of these documents will necessitate the organization inserting all translated material into the original layout multiple times. This means that designers will have to revisit the same layout and design multiple times.

All of these issues are eliminated by DTP. DTP services providers not only adjust text in documents, but also graphics and other images. A visual document can thus be completely translated using DTP services.

This comes in handy when translating multiple visual documents into multiple languages. It will save time and effort while increasing efficiency and decreasing errors.
