Electronic Publishing is the process consisting of editing and formatting of texts and images by means of computer programs. With the advancement of technology, specific tools have been created for this type of work, contributing to greater speed in the process.
In the common development of publishing, the professional understands how the text needs to be arranged, formatted and presented. They analyze the choice of font, line spacing, paragraphs, margins and others, in order to leave the production within the standards chosen by the customer. When it comes to translation, we understand how important this process is for delivering quality material.
When translating a text into another language, it is necessary to know that the text may increase or decrease. Normally, from English to Portuguese for example, the text increases in length and this can be a challenge for the editing area as it visually interferes with the presentation of the document. Some choices can be made, such as reducing the font or even using another one so that the material is arranged in the best possible way.
In the case of Sworn Translation, there are formatting standards that need to be strictly followed in order for the document to be legally valid. Sometimes it does not have to be visually identical to the original, but needs to be arranged in the standardized graphic format of legal texts. In Technical Translations, such as manuals for example, it is extremely important that the content is identical to the original, with the same font and standards as chosen by the customer.
Frequently, it is not only the text that needs to be translated, but also images, tables and charts, and it is up to the specialized team to find a way to reproduce them as faithfully as possible. The use of certain programs such as InDesign, Photoshop, Corel Draw, Illustrator are of extreme importance to execute and complete the work perfectly.
In our company, we always strive to deliver excellent work not only in terms of translation, but also visuals. We have professionals specialized in the use of the necessary programs and the execution of the work. We can guarantee the quality of the material delivered, so that the customer does not have to worry about formatting and finishing.
