The translation of a text is only the first step in the preparation of presentation materials! Can you imagine, for example, a catalogue without photographs, a manual without drawings or a presentation without tables and charts?
We are happy to provide you with a comprehensive graphic service including design, typesetting and typography.
You can also contact us if you are preparing the design and production of a document yourselves and only need help with the preparation of the print data files.
Graphic services and design
This includes the graphic design of texts, photographs, images and charts in presentation materials, as well as the development of design concepts and adjustments to them. If you are interested, we are happy to create an original and creative graphic design for your instructions, manuals or leaflets. The document must be easy to read, understand and remember. The graphics must support the overall idea and the main purpose of the printed material.
That’s why, when creating a graphic design, we place emphasis on (the):
Attention to detail
A good type designer follows the typesetting rules that have been developed over centuries. They still make sense today. They not only make it easier for readers to perceive a text, but also easier to give a final document a professional look.
Typography has its place on the internet as well. If a presented text complies with typographical rules, it in general gives a website a more professional look and creates a better impression with the user. This often plays a very significant role at the moment a potential customer is deciding between several contractors, whereby they often choose the one whose website instantaneously makes the better impact.
Correct use of dashes, minuses, slashes, quotation marks, ellipses, time formats, etc.
Spaces between words, sentences and paragraphs
Spacing with punctuation and brackets, percentages, figures...
Styling of headings
Typesetting involves the processing of text with the use of a typesetting programme that respects the typographical rules of a given language and the provided source text. Typesetting supports the better and smoother readability of a printed text by creating an optically coherent area that meets aesthetic requirements for layout.
We typeset manuals, technical documentation (operating manuals, handbooks, leaflets, catalogues, warranty certificates, technical data sheets, price lists, forms, etc.) and other accompanying materials. In cooperation with the Translation Department, we oversee compliance with the typesetting rules applied in the given languages. If required, we can create a draft of a new graphic design for your document.
