Adelphi has over 20 years of experience providing Bengali typesetting services, localizing your brochures, manuals, and packaging into Bengali ready to print.

Adelphi has helped hundreds of advertising and design agencies and their clients break into new markets and adapt their messages in Bengali. (Bengali is also called Bangla). As well as working for translation agencies worldwide, Adelphi has been a trusted supplier providing Bengali typesetting for companies such as Jaguar Land Rover, the Royal Armouries, HSBC, Barclays bank, Vidal Sassoon, the Overseas Development Institute, and Amnesty International.

A basic guide to Bengali translation of InDesign files using translation software

By using an IDML file exported from InDesign we can speed up the translation and typesetting process when using translation memory software. This method keeps all the formatting from the original InDesign file such as links, character and paragraph styles and fonts plus any interactive elements such as cross-references.

Why choose Adelphi

Clients often come to us with translations produced by another agency or a freelance linguist. However, in many cases, the translator will not have used a font that is compatible with professional typesetting software, making the translation unusable. In cases where the wrong font is used, the entire translation has to be rewritten using a professional font, thus incurring additional costs.

Thanks to Adelphi’s typesetting expertise, we understand that some countries’ fonts are often incompatible with each other and cannot simply be swapped with other fonts. When we produce the translation, we make sure that it is translated using a professional font that works in typesetting software packages.

Graphics localization

We can also localize any graphics in the document using Photoshop or Illustrator, depending on the image we could require the original layered data with live text, not outlined text. We have the latest Adobe CC applications.

Data required

We need the English original data for us to adapt it into Bengali using InDesign and other professional typesetting software, this is usually supplied by the design agency as a “collect or package” which includes all images, fonts, and links (images) to the document. Without these, we cannot create a print-ready PDF as the deliverable.

Deliverable data

We can supply the finished Bengal document as an InDesign data collect and as a print-ready PDF set to your specifications.

    1. Many languages will expand once translated from English, so we’d recommend you leave some space for this. If in doubt, just give us a call and we’ll be happy to help.
    2. Bengali has much taller characters than Latin text so these scripts often require more vertical space between lines.
    3. Your style can be central to your project, but sometimes simple really is best. Drop caps, Bold, italics, and even colored text in the same paragraph can sometimes just not translate into your chosen language. By avoiding this you can also keep your costs down and speed up delivery.
    4. Drop caps and uppercase for emphasis can look great in English, but some languages don’t use them. This is where our company’s typesetting experience can help you.
    5. 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.
    6. As an experienced typesetting agency, we know our fonts and some languages have more restrictions than English. Our staff can show you which fonts work in whichever language you desire, right down to the different weights and condensed versions.
