Desktop Publishing (DTP), sometimes called typesetting, is one of the language services clients are choosing more often in 2019 and is predicted to remain strong for years to come. DTP refers to a method of creating digital forms of traditionally printed materials, like newsletters and magazines to make it easier to communicate new information with your audience. Businesses are making greater use of the versatile service to save effort, time, and money in more ways in 2019 and in upcoming years. The following are just 8 of the many ways your business can benefit from this service regardless of its industry, location, language, target audience, or size.
Common Ways to Use DTP
1. Talk to email subscribers and potential clients
Use desktop publishing strategies as an informative means that lets you send newsletters, brochures, magazines and flyers that communicate to your email subscribers.
Whether you are giving a one-time workshop about publishing e-books or a 4-week online course about business marketing, giving students certificates of completion gives them material evidence of their accomplishment. Depending on your translated language, the certificate can be developed in RTL typesetting or LTR typesetting formats.
3. Save time and money Getting printed or digital magazines, business cards, pamphlets, and marketing materials
made by an experienced LSP can save you up to half the cost of traditional printing and doesn’t require more than a phone call or two. Livewire predicts an increasing need for quality DTP for business websites and business marketing across industries.
4. Social Media Campaigns
Since visuals accompanied by attention-grabbing relevant text (in the appropriate target language) have been shown to get more hits, DTP graphics can make any social media campaign better and more likely to grab the attention of potential customers and clients.
5. Developing legal documents DTP is essential for creating customized legal documents
like agreements and contracts and makes publishing these documents in a translated language easier. A DTP professional would create the customized page layout you need and insert the translated language.
6. In-House correspondence material
Regardless of the size or location of your company, you need to hire employees and correspond with them regularly. DTP services offer you a chance to customize RTL or LTR language templates, hiring forms, job applications, memos, meeting minutes, planners, universal letterhead and so much more that will give your company a more professional image.
7. Customize uniform designs
The best thing about desktop publishing is that it allows you to design anything in any language you choose. An expert language service agency can create customized uniform logos or designs relevant to your business in the language of your choice.
