Could someone please tell me specifically what graphic callouts are? They are mentioned in the instructions for a job in pdf and I am a bit embarassed to ask the client this question (I assume it has to do with images in the text?)

Thanks so much

Ask Dec 28, 2006

Ask the client also, and don't be embarassed to do do; the only stupid question is the one that is not asked.

Text that is embedded in images Dec 29, 2006

... at least in regards to translation. At least, that's what my clients refer to with "callouts".

Often, graphics include embedded text. I.e. the text itself is not accessible as text since it's part of the image and can therefore not be edited directly. Some clients provide "callouts" to the translators. These callouts are usually text strings in a table (Excel, for instance). The agency's/client's DTP or graphic person will then integrate the translated text into the graphics.
