Procedures of DTP with InDesign:

The rates are different depend on different software involved.DTP with InDesign is our regular work. Usually, we quote customer based on per page with A4 size. For DTP with InDesign, we will remind client to send us fonts, indd / idml, links or photos, source PDF before job starting. Sometimes, client assigned us both translation and DTP. In this case, our DTP Engineers will export idml from indd, then send idml to our Project Manager. Idml can be imported into Trados to handle translation directly and then clean after translation. Translated idml can be imported back to indd and then handled DTP procedure.


Layout checking:

A very familiar situation for DTP is to revise back and forth. Every time when Engineer finishes their adjustment job, a PDF will be exported and then Project Managers will check the target PDF with source PDF line by line. Should any place needs to be revised, they will make notes in PDF. Engineers can correct according to notes in PDF again. In this way, several times later, perfect layout can be made and then it will be delivered to customer.
