Some of EQHO’s desktop publishing experience
The in-house advantage
One of the key benefits of maintaining in-house production staff is that EQHOâ€™s DTP operators can work alongside engineers, linguists and QA staff to ensure formatting/layout tasks are completed efficiently, thus reducing errors and speeding-up delivery times. Working along side the engineering department, the DTP operators utilize technology to help automate the DTP process.

Customized DTP solutions
Appreciating that not all document are as important as each other, we offer different options; either simple lower-cost DTP services for non-critical documents, or where the client wished to perform their own review cycle with us. Alternatively, a high-level DTP service for sensitive documents or for those that are intended for print, that need thorough linguistic checking, or in cases where the client doesn’t have the facility or the desire to participate in the review cycle.
