What is Desktop Publishing Services?

Desktop Publishing Services (DTP) allow for documents to be optimized for print and digital media using page layout design, typesetting, formatting and graphic editing. The designer who created your files may not feel comfortable handling the layout in other languages due to language-specific requirements such as word growth, left-to-right layout, and Unicode font selection – and that’s where our experts come in. DTP services ensure that text documents like brochures, books, or banner ads are consistent across all publishing mediums and relay the same message whether on a printed pamphlet or your website.

ALTA’s Desktop Publishing Services

Our team of DTP specialists work closely with you to develop document templates for your publications while remaining true to your brand’s image and messaging to foreign language target audiences.

  • Document Translation Services: Our DTP specialists maintain consistency across all your visual communication collateral- we offer layout design, layout formatting and file conversion that allows for you to translate text into different target languages while maintaining a consistent brand message.
  • Typesetting Services: When text is translated into a foreign language, your document may require substantial adjustments. If the translated language is read from right to left, or it uses a different alphabet, it will most likely change the layout, length or font of a document. We ensure that your text uses the correct fonts and is translated accurately across all languages.

  • Language Testing — We offer customized language testing to meet the needs of your organization. We adjust our testing process so the results accurately represent the speaker’s language proficiency, depending on the demands of specific industries.
