The Translation Is Done. Now What?
Our graphic designers can help you with desktop publishing and multilingual typesetting so they are ready to be printed.
B2B Translations has hundreds of professional, native-language graphic designers who specialize in desktop publishing, illustration, layout, and design. These experienced designers live in various countries and understand the culture where the final documents will be used.
- Multilingual Typesetting. If your original document is in Quark, InDesign, Illustrator, or some other desktop publishing program; we can also do the typesetting and formatting of your documents after we finish the translation. This way, we can check hyphenation, line breaks, and text placement without you having to worry about the final printed piece.
- Asian, Middle Eastern Fonts. We especially recommend that we do the typesetting or desktop publishing for Asian and Middle Eastern languages. Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, and Korean fonts are very different. Not only are they a different language, they use double-byte fonts which may cause problems on your computer. We find it best for our experienced designers to finalize your documents and provide PDF files for your printers. This way, no one has to worry about the fonts.
- Final Style Check. While we are typesetting your project, we will constantly be checking for hyphenation, line breaks, typos, and overall style. Once your job is complete, it is compared to the English for style. We want to make sure that the bold, italic, underlines, extra spacing, bullets, alignment, tables, and charts are all consistent with the English.
- Ready for Printer. The whole goal of our doing the typesetting is so you can send a final high-res PDF to your printer. No worries about fonts, program versions, and missing text. They will just print the high-res PDF and your project is done.
- PDF Proofs. In addition to the high-res PDF you will give to your printer, we also provide a low-res PDF proof for you to review. We want to make sure you see everything before printing.
