Technical content and patents are mostly presented with tables, graphics, diagrams, non-editable pictures.
Technology is booming and translation industry will be heavily effected out of combined AI and DA solutions.
In this article, I would like to share some examples related to the challenges.

Broader Interpretation of “Professional Level” Could Be A Problem

Thanks to our DTP team, we are able to guarantee timely preparation of document translation projects along with typesetting works to provide complete Turnkey solutions.
Mostly prepared with Adobe InDesign®, QuarkXPress®, FrameMaker® software; technical manuals, brochures, catalogues and books are dealt with maximum care to their layouts that may contain rather complex structured indexes, graphics and tables.
The best option would be to send us the original source package, for example, including original source files (let’s say .idml), images, fonts, links, which makes it possible for us to:
- export source .idlm files to .inx files,
- convert the exported .inx files to .ttx files,
- open .ttx files with TagEditor to complete translation process,
- convert bilingual .ttx files back to target .idlm file.
The DTP specialist’s job starts here. Target files (.idml ) are not suitable for printing and must be dealt with by a DTP specialist for several reasons.
Actually, the target language may expand or contract through the translation process; re-alignment of the layout will be needed to accommodate such expansion and contraction.
Also, source documents may contain numerous typefaces not available in the target language. In this case, new fonts (Unicode Arial, Times, Verdana, etc.) may be adopted or non-existing accented fonts of the target language may be recreated to maintain the look and feel of the original design.
Finally, all other elements that may be damaged after the conversion process must be corrected.
To get your documents ready for print, we work on your original files thet were created using:
- PowerPoint ®
If you cannot send us the original files package, but only a PDF, we can follow B Plan for you. We try to convert pdf files to .docx files and work on .docx files. This could be a good option if you are thinking of using the target .docx files for your internal informative purposes, for example, as staff training material.
If you have hardcopy papers to be localized, our DTP team can also recreate the layout used in the original papers.
