EVS Translations has evolved and grown over the past 25 years to deliver solutions that are perfectly tuned to client requirements. This is why we have one of the biggest in-house desktop publishing teams in the industry, which works to provide print-ready solutions. Using the latest design software, they recreate brochures, posters or user manuals across multiple languages, so that when we deliver your content, it’s ready to go.
EVS Translations can complete both the translation and DTP work in one carefully integrated workflow. We have the necessary linguistic and technical expertise to understand and manage issues that arise with different languages including unsupported fonts, excess white space through expansion/contraction, and line-breaks. This in-house expertise for DTP plus full linguistic validation of the content in its final layout means your print-ready materials have a truly professional finish.
The close cooperation between our DTP experts, translators and editors combined with the use of the latest software applications available ensures that we can provide the best solution for your DTP projects:
A prestigious client came to us in November with a large order for the translation of multiple installation and user guides. The Director of Exports had a deadline for shipments and we were raring to go. Unfortunately, after receiving poor quality PDF files for translation, we realised we were missing native files, images, fonts, logo images - just about everything we needed to ensure professional print-ready documentation. A process began of communicating with multiple international branches of the company to locate the missing content while at the same time translating everything we could so that we didn't fall behind on the different deadlines. Our DTP team worked quickly and tirelessly to communicate issues and recommended solutions to the project manager and reacted with speed and flexibility when they finally received what they needed – in addition to recreating some content from scratch! They were able to hand over a set of professional documents to the Director who was extremely relieved to deliver his shipments on time. Best of all, we were able to provide the company with native files for the documents which were missing so that they could update in the future. Well done to our super DTP staff!
