The difference expertise makes

When presenting translation to your clients, the written word is only half of the story. Proper translation desktop publishing compliments the language and respects your readers. It is a critical service for a nominal price.
Our desktop publishing experts are trained and experienced in every language we support. We have a vast library of tools, fonts, and processes available to not only get your design into the target language, but to make it look and feel like it was created in-country.

Right to Left and Left to Right

Some writing systems of the world, such as Arabic, Farsi, Hebrew and Urdu, are written in a form known as right-to-left (RTL), RTL does not only mean that the text is aligned to the right, but also that the reading direction and the entire layout is from right-to-left. The layout is very similar to a mirror view of the equivalent Latin-based text.
For example:

the leftmost menu item in an English user interface (UI) will be the rightmost menu item in a right-to-left UI
direction of flow and arrows in flowcharts will be the inverse of their Latin counterpart

One of the major issues in RTL localization is handling intermingled RTL and English text. For the text to display correctly, RTL and LTR code or Unicode markup need to be inserted in the appropriate places. Without specialized expertise and techniques, simple operations, such as copying, pasting or printing, can disrupt the grammar and cause misspellings.
Our team has hands–on experience producing Arabic, Farsi, Hebrew, and Urdu documents in InDesign ME (Specialized Middle Eastern Version) since 2005. Work with us and we will provide you with the most creative solutions in Arabic typesetting and translation. You will benefit from our in-depth knowledge, gained over 10 years, and enjoy a stress-free experience from start to finish.
