Text Formatting and Document Makeup
Translation of technical documentation consists not only of text translation, but also of retaining the outward appearance of the document – drawings, charts, diagrams, etc. Needless to say, they also must be translated; however, the added challenge requires that the original format and layout of the text and visual material should be retained.
The test in documents containing technical information has its own specifics: It can be positioned vertically, change directions, or place on a circular path. Font styles - italics, underlining, color and other effects are extremely important in documentation formatting.
When accepting such documents for translation, professional staff of the Tanslit Agency gives particular attention to their formatting, strictly following the request and recommendations of the customer.
Layout and Makeup
Makeup means arrangement of all the components (graphics, texts, pictures) on a page. The professionally completed text layout and document makeup are of crucial importance – not only in science, engineering and technology disciplines, but also in advertising and business documentation.
Regardless of the format or type of your documents, layout and makeup designers of the Translit Agency will do their best to reproduce the makeup of the source document that will be returned to you in the required electronic format.
Depending on the order, we offer makeup services, using publishing software such as Adobe InDesign, Adobe FrameMaker, Adobe Illustrator, QuarkXPress and others.
