Desktop pubishing in your language.We produce your localized online or print-ready materials that accurately reflect the original document while adhering to linguistic and typography standards for over 200 languages and target markets.
Comprehensive multilingual desktop publishing (DTP) can be a lengthy and manual process.
Desktop publishing gives the final look and feel to the localized and translated materials and is usually the last step in localization projects. No matter how good the translation quality may be, even a small layout or typographical mistake will dramatically impact how end users perceive the product or brand. This is even more so on high-profile materials such as marketing and advertising communications, product instructions or packaging.
Multilingual DTP can have a direct impact on the product’s regulatory approval and usage.
One incorrectly placed decimal separator in dosage prescription instructions may lead to dire consequences including product recalls, and if a problem with a medical device or pharmaceutical product can be connected to unclear information or instructions provided to users, even liability lawsuits.
Multilingual desktop publishing is a step which should never be underestimated.

- Format and layout of localized and translated documents to match the original source document
- Create PostScript and PDF files for both online and print publication
- DTP quality control checks
- Create and maintain target-language DTP and typographical guidelines and brand guides
- Create templates and document designs for producing online or printed PDF outputs

Here is how we can help Hong, an international marketing manager:
Hong was working really hard on preparing the new product for their European launch. Hong is a busy international marketing manager with a consumer electronics firm based in New York City. Hong’s firm was about to a big launch throughout Europe and turned to INGCO International for our expertise in handling multilingual communications. We worked with Hong to understand their brand guidelines and design standards. We then translated and localized the text into French, Spanish and German. We worked with Hong and his team to ensure that the text fix into their desired layout in Adobe InDesign. We worked with Hong to make sure the marketing and advertising messages were appropriately localized for the European market. We also worked with Hong and his team to create their paid digital marketing campaigns like Google AdWords for their target market. We provided Hong with a list of benefits, which enabled him to get the approval of his whole team. Now Hong is a regular client because his business grew with our internationally certified and US-certified services.
