Translations not only have to be linguistically correct, the format and layout should also be accurate so that your documents look good in the target language. This is where desktop publishing comes in.
When translating documents, it is often necessary to adapt layout and text in the target language document. For example, documents translated from English into German are up to 30 percent longer. Extensive layout 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.
