Multilingual Desktop Publishing Services

Ensuring your message resonates across languages and locales

Since our inception in 1988 Language Intelligence has been following a documented Quality Management System. In 2009 we chose to certify our Quality Management System to the ISO 9001:2008 standard as proof to our customers of how serious quality assurance is to us as a company. We have since updated our certification to ISO 9001:2015, and we plan to continue to maintain certification moving forward.

 

We chose the ISO standard because we believe that it is the most comprehensive of all of the current guidelines and standards available to the translation industry, and because it is a standard that many of our customers are familiar with, or have implemented themselves.

What is Multilingual Desktop Publishing?

Multilingual desktop publishing is the process of converting and adapting content from one language to another.

 

But not every culture expresses the same idea in the same way - there are multiple characters, words, and idioms used all around the world to say the same thing. Our DTP team does exactly that - with our help, you can localize your content no matter the locale.

Why Do You Need Multilingual DTP Services?

Multilingual DTP is a crucial step in the entire translation and localization process because, without it, your content won’t always make sense! Multilingual desktop publishing services are needed to make your materials ready for global distribution.

Accurate text translations will only go so far with your international audience. Instead, you’ll need to professionally format your content to meet different cultural standards for the best user experience possible.

 

If you choose to translate your content without properly localizing it with multilingual DTP services, chances are your readers will be confused and won’t be able to properly grasp the material.

Let's talk!

We want to hear about your translation needs and share more information about our services.

Adapt left-to-right texts into right-to-left languages such as Arabic, Hebrew, and Farsi. This means flipping your entire material to look and read properly.

Modifying images for alignment with character-based languages including Chinese, Japanese, and Korean.

Ensuring images, colors, and other graphic elements are appropriately localized and are not offensive to the target locale.

Adjusting layout designs to accommodate longer languages such as Russian or German. Typically, German text is about 30% longer than English, so necessary formatting changes need to be made. The same goes for languages like Finish, which tend to be much shorter in length than English.
