Desktop Publishing in Portuguese
Our Portuguese DTP Services in print and electronic publishing range from design and lay-out, to production and pre-press. With a background in books, magazines, and training materials, we can take a document from intermediary files to finished source files, Postscript, or PDF quickly and professionally.
Our studio for Portuguese DTP includes Macintoshes and high-end PCs, professional scanners for art and documents, and the latest versions of DTP software such as Quark XPress and Adobe Indesign. This makes it possible to provide high-quality desktop publishing services via e-mail, FTP, CDs, DVDs, Zip drives, tapes and cartridges media in the US, Brazil or Portugal.
We use clean design and lay-out to convey your message clearly and precisely to Portuguese readers. Attention to detail is a must regarding printed Portuguese grammar, punctuation, spelling, and typography to help ensure vivid, unambiguous communication of your message.
Our familiarity with a broad variety of subjects and the special typographical needs associated with those topics, including units of measure and other often-overlooked nuances, ease understanding and reduce confusion when discussing the specific requirements or unusual demands of a particular discipline.

Our DTP services

Translation of technical documents from English to Portuguese or Portuguese to English has substantial impact on the graphical layout of documents. For example:
- Documents translated from English to Spanish expand in word count, and require more space or smaller font size.
- Spanish words can be dozens of characters long, requiring re-sizing of graphics and menu items.
