Multilingual DTP (Desktop Publishing) processing is a process related to the preparation of texts for publication, including the adaptation of digital files for multiple languages and graphical processing of texts. This includes the conversion of non-editable documents into an editable format, which contributes significantly to speeding up the translation process and the quality of the final result.

It combines language experts with designers to keep your designs as consistent as possible between different languages.

This process of graphic processing of texts combines the skills of language experts with those of DTP specialists (designers), allowing complete preservation of the form and the graphic vision of your documents and materials, regardless of the language of its content.

Content Translations provides graphical processing of documents (eg manuals, instructions, catalogs or leaflets, forms, brochures, invitations, etc.) in any format in many languages, while maintaining the original format of the document and staying as close to the original design as possible – ready to print, publishing or for any distribution channel you use.


When we speak about DTP, we are really referring to layout services after translation. Here are some cases when DTP is required:

  • Every language has its own different structure, so the space required to fit the text into your document will change from one language to another. The layout has to be resized and fixed.
  • Simple design changes can include modifying the size of a picture, the layout of your document to fit the translation.
  • Certain typefaces cannot support all the characters used in different languages. Our DTP experts have the experience and the knowledge to determine which fonts can be used depending on the language you want to translate into
  • Upon completion of the DTP of your files, we can create print-ready PDFs or files in the final layout you require
