Translations in InDesign

Translations for InDesign files can be carried out in two ways. If we receive the original InDesign file, we can translate directly into this document, so that your file is ready to be used straight away. If the original InDesign file is unavailable, customers can send us a PDF of the InDesign text. We translate this PDF in a Word document, which the customer then converts back into InDesign. They either do this themselves or arrange for a printer or (external) layout designer to do this for them. In both cases, it will cost extra money and/or time. If you would rather not work on the layouts yourself, we can also arrange this for you for an additional fee, so you will receive your file back in InDesign, saving you or your printer a lot of cutting and pasting.

You can email us the document for a no-obligation quote. Should the document be too large to send, please contact us and we will send you a secure link via which you can upload the file.


It is usually necessary to adjust the layout once the translation has been completed. This is because the word count will most likely be either larger or smaller when translated into another language, so your text may have shifted somewhat in comparison to the original document. As we work with experienced layout professionals, we will also be able to organise the layout for you.
