Graphics localization
We localize all graphics in the artwork into Japanese and depending on the source image we would need the original layered data with live text to work with. We have the latest Adobe CC applications on Apple Mac computers.

Data required

We need to be provided with the original English artwork for us to adapt it into Japanese, this is best supplied as a “collect or package” which needs to include all the fonts and links to the document and any layered PSD files that contain text if they are going to be localized. We cannot create a print-ready PDF as the deliverable without these.

Deliverable data

We can supply the finished Japanese artwork as a print-ready PDF set to your specifications.

  1. Many languages expand once translated from English, so it is best if you leave some space for this. If in doubt, just give us a call and we’ll be happy to help.
  2. Bold, italics and even colors in the same paragraph may not translate into the target language. Avoiding these will keep your costs down and speed up the process.
  3. Drop caps and uppercase are not supported in some languages.
  4. If you want to place text over an image, try to add it to the document rather than in the image itself. That way we can edit exactly what you need changing.
  5. We can advise on fonts to match the original as close as possible
