InDesign Translation Service

GTS provides fast, high quality translation of InDesign files. If you have a high-res publication which was authored in InDesign you can submit the native files to us for translation into over 70 languages. This includes RTL (right-to-left) languages such as Arabic and Hebrew; and all Asian languages including Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Thai.

GTS has published thousands of InDesign files for hundreds of satisfied clients. We are the best InDesign translation service for multilingual publishing of high-end marketing/product materials due to our excellent team of skilled translators and our expertise in InDesign DTP.

Adobe InDesign is a desktop publishing software (DTP) program produced by Adobe Systems. It is used to create high-end publications such as brochures, catalogs, product labels, manuals, product instruction guides and magazines. It is probably the number one DTP application on the market.

Our work process for translation of InDesign files is as follows:

  • We save the INDD files in IDML (InDesign Markup) file format.  IDML files can be parsed and translated with the use of Computer Assisted Translation (CAT) and Translation Memory tools such as SDL Trados.
  • Once the translation is done in the CAT tool, we save the target file back into IDML format.
  • Our DTP team then checks the IDML file for proper page layout and formatting, and saves the file in InDesign file format.
  • We deliver the translated InDesign files and print-ready PDF files when the project is completed.

InDesign files and associated graphic tend to be heavy (over 20 MB) and are not always suitable for transmission by email. In the event that the files are indeed that large, we will send you an upload link to our secure FTP server so you can upload the files quickly and easily.
