Client feature a leading industria manufacturer receives a much needed helping hand
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!

The fascinating thing about language is that it tends to grow. The positive part about that is that it adapts with the people who use it, so it never “goes out of style” – unless of course, all the people who speak it give it up for something less complicated, as happened with Latin. But … Continue reading Irritating Expansion, or “How do we fit 20% more text in the space allowed” – InDesign Blues
