Document re-creation from paper or PDF
Want to export, but only have old paper or PDF documentation?
Document re-creation converts these into editable, translation-ready files.
Not all products evolve quickly; many still-current ranges have only paper or scanned documentation. That used to be problematic if you wanted to export and need other languages, but no longer. Our DTP specialists and translation services re-create the document to a standard similar to - or better than - the original, in whatever languages you need - or English, if you simply want an editable version. And the re-creation cost is a one-off - once done, for more languages you just pay for translation plus a typesetting charge - and since you'll own the new layout, you don't have to use our translation (although we'd like you to!). Our translation service handles French, German, Spanish, Italian, Dutch, Greek, Polish, Russian, Arabic and Portuguese, and most other languages, which thanks to our multilingual typesetting service look at least as good as the original. HERE's some case studies!
- The biggest re-creation project we've handled to date was 20 fully-illustrated high-school Maths and Science coursebooks - that's well over 2000 pages. We took the scanned originals, re-built them in InDesign, translated the content - into Arabic - then typeset that back into the layouts, flipping everything to read right-to-left, and delivering the product back as press-ready PDFs which are now in use in dozens of schools.
- The smallest is a single business card, re-built and translated to Chinese - client said "Looks better than the original!"
- In between are all sorts - flyers, packs, labels, datasheets, posters, and more - all re-created, translated and typeset.
Not only new products can be exported - if you've a mature product and waiting export market, but only English hard-copy documentation, we can provide user-ready foreign language documentation quickly, accurately and affordably.
