Desktop publishing (DTP) services can be a critical element in a translation project. Many translations involve typesetting, graphics, website layouts, etc. Our desktop publishing team specializes in high-quality, translation-related design services, graphic design, documentation and graphic localization projects with fast turnaround.
Slovenian Translations offers in-house desktop publishing services. Most document translations require some type of desktop publishing to ensure that the final product’s appearance is as similar to the original document as possible. For documents with heavy graphics and a complex design layout, desktop publishing plays a vital role in ensuring that the translated text fits the original layout and graphic design. Otherwise, the final product, while translated correctly, could look unprofessional. At Slovenian Translations, we do not outsource our desktop publishing projects, ensuring that you receive not only the highest quality translation, but also that the final layout is consistent with the source document.
A lot of fonts were made only with English characters in mind. Such typefaces don’t contain diacritical marks so their use in other languages is limited. At Slovenian Translations we are able to add missing Slovenian characters (ČŠŽ, čšž) to your TrueType and OpenType fonts. Using the same typefaces is crucial in ensuring that the final product’s appearance is as similar to the original document as possible. This service is also available separately for adding diacritical marks to your fonts to support other Latin alphabet languages.
