What is foreign language desktop publishing and why do you need it?

Foreign language desktop publishing (DTP) involves the formatting and layout of translated materials into design files. DTP professionals possess the cultural knowledge it takes to transform your translated message into collateral meaningful to your new target audience. The details – colors, backgrounds, symbols, images, and the like – are what make the effort impactful. Using a designer without these specialized skills comes with known risks: at the least, lackluster appeal and first impression; at worst, damage to your brand.

Can your regular designer do the layout for your translated materials?

Maybe, but mistakes can happen if they’re not familiar with the language and culture of your target audience. You risk dropped text, inappropriate spacing, inaccurate word breaks, and more. To avoid errors – saving time and money in the long run – it’s best to use a professional foreign language desktop publisher to lay out and produce translated materials. Learn more about potential desktop publishing issues and how to avoid them.

Do my materials or design files require any preparation for translation?

Preparing your content for translation and DTP speeds and smooths the process. Start by writing in Global English, leaving white space in the layout, using simple design elements, and always planning ahead to avoid potential issues.

Is there a special program or software you need to use?
