Desktop Publishing (DTP)

Desktop publishing (DTP) services can be a critical element in a translation project. Many translations involve typesetting, graphics, website layouts, etc. We specialize in high-quality, translation-related design services, graphic design, documentation and graphic localization projects with fast turnaround.


SLS has a dedicated team comprised of desktop publishers in the translation industry. Most document translations require some type of desktop publishing to ensure that the final product’s appearance is as similar to the original document as possible. For documents with heavy graphics and a complex design layout, desktop publishing plays a vital role in ensuring that the translated text fits the original layout and graphic design. Otherwise, the final product, while translated correctly, could look unprofessional. At SLS, we always ensure that you receive not only the highest quality translation, but also that the final layout is consistent with the source document.

Translation Format and Design

With a strong grasp of the nuances of different technologies, SLS knows the importance of maintaining the electronic format and design of the original document.

Whatever the format is, we will deliver the final translation in the same format as the original document.

This minimizes any administrative hassles and allows you to use the translation immediately.
