DTP or desk top publishing was a much sought after service a few years back. DTP technology has improved to such an extent today that it is possible for even a lay man to do desk top publishing if he cares to learn quickly. The user friendly software now only requires the user to have secondary skills.
However DTP services are much sought after when in comes to bulk projects and the Indian based professional outsource providers are often preferred for the long term projects. Besides saving time and money, these providers are able to deliver highly professional and error free documents consistently.
Some of the common DTP services sent to India include:
- Graphic designing
- Photo images processing and publishing
- Magazines, news letters and journals publishing
- Technical editing
- Books and Charts preparation
Some of the popular DTP software available in the market today include Adobe Indesign, Quark express, Pagemaker, and Ventura. Scribus is an open source free DTP software.
One need to have no hesitation in off-shoring DTP projects to India, or doubt the standard of quality. Yes, it is necessary to do a background check before signing a big deal. Generally the Indian DTP professionals are quite educated and fluent in English. Actually after the USA and the UK, India is the most published country in the world. Most of the publishing is done in English. Though Indian English is a world unto itself, there have been Indian writers who have got recognition for international work. A new generation of Indian youth is fast getting very familiar and even identifies with American English, even though most of them may have had a formal British style education.
Managed Outsource Solutions is US based outsource services provider with work units in India and offers a range of DTP services, besides other BPO services like data entry, legal transcription, and web development.
