Desktop Publishing (DTP)

Desktop Publishing (DTP) involves a number of procedures aiming to organize the general appearance and formatting of an already translated and proofread text.

It includes character, paragraph and page formatting, the resizing, placement and creation of pictures and graphics, preparation of contents and index pages and creating documents such as books and brochures that are ready for commercial printing. Before delivery, all documents are printed and visually checked for formatting errors. Documents are saved as PostScript or PDF (display) files for commercial printing.

Desktop publishing involves:

  • taking screenshots
  • creating indexes and table of contents
  • alphabetically sorting
  • checking headers and footers for consistency
  • page layout and formatting
  • creating PostScript/PDF files
