[We create any type of QuarkXPress® layout for Macintosh or Windows]
ALL VERSIONS FROM 4 TO 9!
Soget started using XPress from version 2 and contributed – as beta tester – to its development, implementing the best translation solutions and updating texts in .qxd format.
XPress was launched by Quark in 1987, and its impact on the market was immediate. At that time, electronic publishing was taking its first tentative steps, and many publications were still produced mechanically. XPress introduced the concepts of typography, layout and high precision colour management through desktop computers. Today, QuarkXPress boasts over 3m users worldwide, and the programme has reached its 9th edition.
In order to guarantee full compatibility, we use QuarkXPress Passport 4.x, 5.x, 6.x, 7.x, 8x and 9.x versions.
Our solutions include both the development of new documents in QuarkXpress and the translation and publishing of the multi-language versions of existing QuarkXpress documents.
EXECUTION OF NEW DOCUMENTS IN QUARKXPRESS
In the first case our services focus on analysing, structuring and creating new documentation - including graphics - specialising in particular on multilingual typography. Upon request, we may also print the documents produced (typographically, digitally, etc.) or prepare same for multimedia or Internet publishing.
Our products include image-related documents, brochures and leaflets; manuals and instruction booklets; catalogues, presentations, educational and training literature, e-books and online and offline documentation.
TRANSLATING AND UPDATING EXISTING QUARKXPRESS DOCUMENTS
In the second case, we translate new documents (translation and DTP of new brochures, technical manuals, etc.) and update existing documentation already available in QuarkXPress format. Our use of the most advanced CAT technologies (Computer Aided Translation) allows us to translate all documents directly in QuarkXpress, without needing to create new layouts for each language version produced.
QUARKXPRESS IN ARABIC, CHINESE, AND... ALL SUPPORTED LANGUAGES
Our solutions allow us to create documents in all the main languages, including those with right-to-left scripts (Arabic, Hebrew and Farsi) and those with Asian alphabets (Chinese, Korean and Japanese).
These versions may be opened and printed using standard versions (from 4 to the latest release) as well as the localised versions of QuarkXPress (Chinese, Japanese, etc.).
Finally, as regards versions 7, 8 and 9 we guarantee full support for multilingual solutions based on the Unicode standard and for the use of Opentype fonts.
We translate and publish in all the main languages. In the event of layouts containing texts created using other applications, we also translate and update same using all the main graphic formats, including: CorelDraw, Fireworks, FreeHand, Illustrator and Photoshop.
Finally, when updating documentation we make use of a tool that allows us to identify any modifications mode, therefore limiting our translation activity to these sections. In this case too, the original properties of the document are preserved, thus reducing DTP costs and production times.
PDF OPTIMISATION AND VALIDATION
Our service may be extended to include the optimisation and validation of PDFsâ€¨, in compliance with the printing specifications received from our customer, editor or typographer. This process requires the correct setting and verification of:
Formats, TrimBox, ArtBox and BleedBox
Colour space of each advert (for CMYK, RGB, LAB or ICC based devices)
Ink weight, trapping sequences and black or white overprints
Use of font: compatibility, embedded fonts, etc.
TEXT AND FONT CONVERSIONâ€¨ We offer numerous solutions for the conversion of texts of texts between different operating systems. In particular, we publish multilingual texts produced in Windows formats within QuarkXPress documents on Macintosh 8.0 and following operating systems.
This solution may be applied to all Eastern, Baltic and Cyrillic alphabet languages.
We also convert font libraries so that these may be used in all QuarkXpress versions.
We provide translation and DTP services in QuarkXPress for all the languages supported by the programme.
