Desktop publishing



When translating documents, it is often necessary to adapt layout and text in the foreign language document. Extensive changes may be required. I will check the translation in its final format to make sure that hyphenation and punctuation is implemented correctly. To optimize the overall impression of your translated documents, I also pay attention to typographic standards in the target language.





Do you have documents that you cannot edit? Do you need a pdf file as Word document? Digitalization starts where OCR (optical character recognition) breaks down. These programs are not able to mirror the layout correctly. In the course of digitalization, a copy of the original is created as precisely as possible — including all formatting and hidden layout information. The generated document is editable and can be used for further tasks, e.g. translation.
