TRLM 8626

Multilingual DTP and A/V - Lec

This course is designed to give students a solid foundation in multilingual desktop publishing and audio/visual localization. Students will learn how to localize print-based and motion assets created using the most common industry tools. Students will be exposed to a wide variety of tools—primarily Adobe Creative Cloud applications such as Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Acrobat and After Effects. Most topics are approached from the angle of a translator, project manager and localization engineer. We will spend time learning about typeface and layout fundamental concepts and how they impact translation. Students will learn how to discuss DTP with clients and be able to quote on DTP projects. The course is taught in two parts, a lecture with the entire class to introduce concepts and skills, and a separate lab with a smaller cohort to put these new concepts and skills to work (both lecture and lab are required).
