Multilingual desktop publishing services

As a full-service translation company, at EVS Translations, we offer a variety of multilingual desktop publishing and graphic design services to meet the unique needs of your translation project.

We have the in-house resources, experience and tools to complete even the most challenging (high volume and tight deadline) projects.

Your files will not only be professionally translated but also accurately formatted and localised to meet the requirements of the target market.

Send us your original files, together with your requirements, and we will provide you with translated, formatted and localised files ready for immediate printing or publication. Your document/web file will appear as though it was locally created in the region of the target language.

At EVS Translations, we have an in-house engineering team (Lead Team) which acts as a lead to our external resources, providing any instruction and support when required.

Having a DTP team in-house (Lead Team) ensures integration between our teams of translators, DTP experts and project managers and provides us with full control over quality and delivery time of any given project.

The close cooperation between our desktop publishing solutions experts, native speaking translators and editors responsible for the linguistic side of the job ensures that we can provide the best solution for your desktop publishing project.

The integrated translation and DTP service ensures that the text and associated copy maintains its integrity and that layout, colours, fonts, sizes and ratios are as in the original copy.

Furthermore, our team of desktop publishers work together with native speaking linguists. Once the document is properly localised and formatted in the required language, our team of proofreaders checks every aspect of your translation project to ensure highest level of quality assurance.

Every desktop publishing solution is designed and localised to fit the unique requirements of the market it is intended for.

Desktop publishing specialists and graphic designers at EVS Translations use the latest software applications available. We support the appropriate software solution to prepare any project, of any size and in any format. We perform a final compatibility check to ensure that the output file is compatible with different operating systems, web browsers, software packages and hardware.

Your ready for print/publication desktop publishing project can be delivered to you by post (paper, CD Rom), e-mail or direct ftp (file transfer protocol) upload via our secure FTP client in the format of a hard copy, electronic document, print-ready document or all of the aforementioned.

Electronic documents

Nowadays, more and more documents are published in an electronic format. Whether you require a PDF file or a rich media one or web based files, EVS Translations can provide you with the best translation and desktop publishing solution to fit your project requirements.

At EVS Translations, we have an in-house IT team of professionals experienced in web design and scripting, internet marketing and search engine optimisation. When you require a web file or web site translation, our IT team will rework and test your source code and ensure that you receive web files ready to be published and as effective in other languages as the original.

Print-ready documents

Many translated documents are designed for printing, or for distribution in a print-ready form. Our desktop publishing team will finalize your translated documents, preserving the page layout and margins of the original ones as far as possible and will deliver the final documents ready for immediate printing/ publishing for your chosen distribution media.

EVS Translations will deliver your translated documents in formats that will not result in any formatting or conversion problems during the subsequent print processes. We are able to provide you with a solution that ensures your documents will be opened and printed out without a problem under any given platform, font set, size or hardware.
