The release of a product into the global market often requires the localization of accompanying documents, such as user guides and help. The localization process typically extends beyond just the translation of the text; it often includes complete adaptation of materials to the local market. This includes adapting graphics, tables/charts, and the creation of screenshots which illustrate the program functions in the resulting, translated language. This process frequently results in a substantial difference in the volume of material between the original and translated languages. In order to mitigate the effects of this discrepancy, it is necessary to adjust multilingual DTP accordingly.
Logrus offers a comprehensive set of services in localization, typesetting, and document design:
- Translation, including editing by a native speaker of the language
