Desktop publishing

Desktop publishing (DTP) is an essential part of the localization process. Minor errors in the layout, images, text and punctuation can affect first impressions of the company's product or brand. In addition, localized marketing and training materials that adhere to local publishing standards can greatly enhance the user experience of the target audience and attract more users.

iLen provides professional DTP, cross-media production, graphic design and prepress typesetting services. We work with Mac and Windows operating systems and can provide Asian, European and bi-directional multilingual localization typesetting, such as Hebrew and Arabic.

Our experienced and detail-oriented DTP team can find problems in the source files that lead to inefficiencies and help you identify potential translation problems in the target language. When you choose iLen, you get more than just excellent documents in multiple languages.
