Layout (DTP)

Eurotrad provides a professional desktop publishing service for your business. Desktop publishing (DTP) ensures that your editorial pages maintain an appropriate design and structure in line with the original document when you decide to translate them into different languages.

DTP involves the application of a number of techniques designed to ensure your company’s editorial content (books, newspapers, magazines, brochures, posters, product packaging, billboards, etc.) translated into another language has a professional layout and proper formatting.

With the use of specific DTP software we can layout your company’s texts to deliver them back to you ready for professional printing or for putting the content online on your website or other devices.

What is desktop publishing (DTP)

Desktop publishing, often abbreviated as “DTP” or also called “digital typography,” brings together all the digital (i.e., computer-borne) procedures and techniques necessary for the production of publishing products.

The term literally means “personal publishing,” “desktop publishing,” and was invented by Paul Brainerd, who in 1985 published the first desktop publishing program (PageMaker), laying the foundation for the electronic publishing industry.
Since the 1990s, desktop publishing has led to an almost complete replacement of previous publishing production techniques.

The following devices are required to create content of a publishing nature with DTP: a computer, a monitor, a graphics card, a digital scanner, and a printer.
Today desktop publishing has become an integral part of the translation process. Through the use of digital typography software, we at Eurotrad can format and recreate the layout of foreign language pages for both print and digital use.
