Desktop Publishing

“For the translation industry, desktop publishing (DTP) is an essential part of the whole work process.”

When it comes to having one text in multiple languages and afterwards having the same outer layout or formatting, Desktop Publishing (or often abbreviated DTP) is a must so you get the same result in all languages. Add the Asian languages and their diversity into the mix and things become even more complicated.

What is different in DTP with 1-StopAsia?

Language expertise – Our DTP experts know the languages they work with. Furthermore, it is a big advantage that they can read the languages, so they can discover the small details that make a difference. As an example, characters that have to stay together or small combinations of characters that can not have spaces between them.

Language rules – Sometimes the Asian punctuations and paragraph rules can pose a big challenge to a person from outside of Asia due to the fact that they are different from other Alphabet based languages.

Local knowledge – We know the trends in the local markets and customs, so we can be up-to-date with them. Whenever it is required, we can follow exact local specifics for our clients, so the final product is fitting your purposes.

Trends – very often the secret lies in the right choice of fonts. The Asian fonts that European clients use are often very old. In this case, even if you are the most modern company, using the wrong font in Asia will present your materials look like they are from the 1970s. We have collected and used copyright protected modern, trendy and fancy fonts that will speak about you locally much more than words.
