Why is desktop publishing needed post-translation?

DTP refers to creating both print and digital documents using page layout software.

Because every language has its own structure, DTP services are necessary to preserve the layout of a translated document, book, publication, or manual.

For example, English-to-German translation results in text that’s 30% longer. Or English-to-Arabic translation requires a document to be flipped from left-to-right to right-to-left.

To adapt to these differences, a document’s layout needs to be adapted for each new target language.
