  10. 10. typical desktop publishing project workflow ur client sends a request. Based on the information supplied global dtp evaluates the source material and prepares an estimate. The request is registered into our planning. Supplied files and information are examined by a Project Manager. We are then able to determine the time and work scope necessary for the production and costs based on our experience. The client issues preliminary purchase order to confirm the work scope. Our analysis could also reveal possible issues that would be encountered during the production. Any possible issues are always discussed with the client. Some projects are received at a stage before translation. Source files need to be prepared for translators. We analyze supplied files, check with the client what exactly needs to be localized and prepare translation kit. Body texts, graphics, special text fragments are all gathered together for translation. A project in production is assigned to a Project Manager. He or she is responsible for successful and timely execution of project workflow, communicates with the client and assigns individual project tasks to our staff. Translated files are processed in DTP 1 stage. Depending on the form of expected feedback from the client, DTP 1 stage can be either full or draft DTP. 9
  11. 11. If the client intends to implement first language feedback into his TM database and to send us newly translated files, we just do draft DTP to allow translators to perform their language review. Full DTP is moved to second stage. Full DTP consists of application of language specifications and DTP rules on the project documents by a DTP operator. Language specifications can be either supplied by the client in project instructions or general rules available. Reviewed documents are printed to final format and compared to source final or reference output in detail. After this format check, files are handed over our internal QA. Files are prepared for client’s review after internal QA. The client proceeds with language and DTP review in one or two rounds. All comments are implemented by a DTP operator, the implementation is checked by independent reviewer. The output is sent to the client for approval. Other feedback or document updates follow similar process. Once the files are approved for final delivery by the client and no further changes are expected, final output is prepared and all project files are delivered to the client. Project Manager then reports to the client the final costs on the project and receives final PO. Final delivery can be followed by discussion with the client about the project specifics to optimize the process in the future. 10
