What our clients say

  • Among other languages, Andiamo! have completed large translation and typesetting projects in Korean, Romanian and Brazilian Portuguese to be used to train our end clients’ sales teams. Our end client’s in-country teams collaborated with Andiamo! to achieve a high-quality end product and we are very happy with the quality of the translations and the efficiency of the Andiamo! Projects team.
  • We have used Andiamo! to typeset two reports and have found them to be very professional, helpful and quick. They provided excellent attention to detail and we were extremely pleased with the quality of work we received back. The communication we received from staff throughout the process was friendly and efficient. We will definitely use them again for any typesetting needs.
  • We have worked with Andiamo! for several years on the translation and typesetting of our gas detector brochures into multiple languages and the end result is always of excellent quality.
  • Andiamo! really understood what I was trying to achieve. They don’t just deliver a job, they write intelligently and on brief. The translated and typeset Chinese artwork supplied was a breeze to slot into my document, which made the process very painless. Thank you!
  • Andiamo! regularly translate our Travel Trade newsletters and brochures into 6 languages and provide guidance with the typesetting. We have one dedicated Project Manager who organises all of our requests and we are extremely happy with the level of service and turnaround times. We also receive excellent feedback from our international clients about the translations.

What is foreign language typesetting?

Foreign language typesetting is the process of laying out foreign text and scripts on the printed page or on the screen.

There are many different rules and guidelines to follow when it comes to typesetting a foreign language. For instance:

  • in Japanese it’s important to make sure certain words aren’t split between lines
  • page layouts in Arabic have to be ‘flipped’ to ensure they can be read correctly
  • text translated into Russian expands by up to 25%, so often needs to be reformatted to ensure it doesn’t look squashed

To help you keep your business looking professional in every language we offer this service by experienced typesetters who understand both the rules and the technology behind typesetting foreign languages.
