Multilingual artwork translation and DTP services

Multilingual desktop publishing and typesetting


You’ve invested time and money into designing artwork, brochures and glossy marketing material for your brand, and now you need it to look sleek and stylish in multiple languages. This is where we come in. We take the risk out of foreign-language DTP and typesetting, translating and converting your artwork into any language your require.

I need translation and DTP

Send us your artwork, fonts and links, and we’ll incorporate typesetting into the translation process. Our linguists work in a translation environment which links to Indesign files, so we update the artwork as we translate. Skilled typesetters with extensive Indesign experience then finalise the artwork before a final review by native speakers.

I only need multilingual DTP

In this situation, we take your artwork and the translation you provide, and put the text in situ. This is completed by skilled typesetters with experience typesetting different languages, including complex scripts and right-to-left languages, like Arabic and Farsi. At the final step everything is checked over by native speakers to ensure it’s perfect.

Who do you work with?

Marriott and McLaren are just two of our multilingual typesetting clients. They value our ability to fully retain their brand look and feel, whilst completely changing the language.

How much does DTP cost?

Our multilingual typesetting and DTP services are priced at £45 + vat per hour. If you’d like a quote for your project, get in touch with the SL team and we’ll be happy to give you a quote.
