Webinar on DTP for translators
The objective of this webinar is to introduce translators to the basics of Desktop Publishing, its place in the process of translating a document and the main tools we use for this task.

Topics to be addressed include:

• What is DTP and where it is in the process of publishing / printing?

• Scope of the translator's work on projects with DTP
• Requirements for working with DTP software
• Approaching a project with DTP

This webinar will be conducted through the online courses and events platform Go to Webinar (www.gotowebinar.com). The trainer will make a presentation to attendees covering the above issues, using a PowerPoint presentation and sharing his desktop, to show the main tools that are used.

Attendees may ask public or private questions and request oral participation during the session, if necessary.
