International content that doesn’t lose your formatting and layout

Our in-house DTP team makes sure your translations are ready for printing.

The translations of your company brochures, manuals and catalogues need to look just as good as the originals. With ACT’s in-house graphic designers, all the creativity and care you put into your design remain consistent in all languages. Why is it important for translators and designers to work closely together? Sometimes the translation is considerably longer or shorter than the original. That can cause the text to run onto the next page or leave too much white space and the images land in the wrong places. Our professional graphic designers eliminate these risks, optimizing your layout until everything is right where it belongs—so even in translation, your design enhances your content.
