Seamless processes from translation to publication


A huge variety of systems and programs are used for creating texts. Consequently, translations and localised texts are processed and published in many different formats.

Using the very latest technology, we can process and translate all standard file formats directly. Our seamless workflow greatly reduces costs and processing time, and the potential for errors.

Data from CMS and editing systems


If you are using content management systems or editing systems that are based on XML or SGML, it is vital that the data is prepared in such a way that the XML files in the translation can be processed without errors, and that every type of DTD (document type definition) can be taken into account. We can process data for any standard system without errors and ensure the best possible workflow.

Here is a small sample selection:

Tip: Different languages have different lengths. For example, a French translation is on average 25% longer than a German or English source text.

For this reason, you should allow enough space in the layout for translations right at the start, when you are creating your texts. The same applies to all compact formats, such as displays, websites, and user interfaces.

For information about modifications to software, websites and texts with length restrictions, please get in touch with our contact person.
