German term or phrase: DTP/Seitenumbruch
I am translating the range of services that a documentation/translation company offers.
I presume DTP is desk top publishing but what about Seitenumbruch?
Also listed as services are:
AV - any ideas what this is an abbreviation of?
Textumbruch?
The prices given also assume that the customer has been able to provide the complete English "4c-Datei". Is this just a 4c file?

Explanation:
DTP - I am sure you are right on this one.
Seitenumbruch - Der Grosse Eichborn gives copy editing as one of the options for Umbruch, so as a guess maybe 'copy editing of pages' or of text for Textumbruch.
I can't find anything on AV.
4c datei - I don't know if if this has any special meaning in this context.
Hope this is of some help.

Explanation:
DTP is Desk Top Publishing,
Seitenumbruch is page makeup or page make-ready
4c-Datei is a 4c-file, 4c stands for 4-colour, i.e. the file from which the print is produced is already colour seperated.
I only know AV as audiovisual, but this does not fit a printing context.

AV - see below


Explanation:
Just a suggestion. Audio-visual might fit the context if they offer the translation/preparation of documents for powerpoint or slide projector presentation. HTH, Beth
