The historical story behind the DTP service and its importance.

DTP: The Guaranteed Method to adapt multilingual file layout.

Desktop publishing (DTP) is one of the most critical essential final phases in the translation process, where different multilingual files are adapted to the nearest design layout. 

In DTPZONE, we consider Desktop publishing (DTP) as the final phase in a localization project. Our professional translators collaborate with our designers to keep your designs as similar as possible between different languages.

The Historical Story Behind The DTP Service

In origin, Xerox PARC has firstly developed DTP in the 1970s. However, another claim stated that it started in 1983 by James Davise at a newspaper in Philadelphia. For instance, it was first used exclusively for printed publications. After that, DTP had been used for making different forms of online content.

It is well known among the industry that DTP is considered the mother of digital typography; Where the reason behind it can produce typography with high-quality text and images, comparable to the old version.

DTP Service Rocking Benefits

One of the rocking benefits of the DTP service is that it keeps your designs as similar as possible when dealing with RTL Languages, like translating from Arabic to English. File Layout must be adapted with Desktop publishing tools.
