File formats we have experience with

Posted on by

We can process simple file formats as well as graphics file formats requiring in-depth pre- and post-processing in order to guarantee the highest translation quality.

All file formats are adapted in a way enabling implementation of the translation memory system. This means that, regardless of whether you provide us with a Word or a FrameMaker file, we always find a way to process a clear content. Graphics file formats must be processed by our DTP specialists before translation so that the individual segments are shown correctly in the translation memory and can be used for future translation assignments.

Our DTP specialists can handle the following file formats expertly and quickly:

  • Microsoft Word
  • Microsoft Excel
  • Microsoft Access
  • Microsoft PowerPoint
  • Open Office
  • TXT, CSV
  • XML
  • HTML
  • PDF
  • Adobe FrameMaker
  • Adobe InDesign
  • Adobe Illustrator
  • Adobe PageMaker
  • Adobe Photoshop
  • CorelDRAW
  • Tagged-Image File Format (tif)
  • Graphic Interchange Format (gif)
  • Joint Photographic Experts Group (jpg)

If you use a file format which is not on the list, you can forward us the file to be translated anyway. With our technical support we can always find a way to process the files correctly by means of CAT tools.

Can a PDF file be translated as well?

Yes, a PDF file can be used for the translation – even implementing a translation memory. However, the complete translation process takes longer than in case of an InDesign or a FrameMaker file.
