A clean, technically correct layout requires mastery of the software. Our decades of experience with the main authoring and desktop publishing (DTP) software tools has turned us into power users, we are curious and eager to learn more. With the layout template (style sheet), you won’t see our expertise right away, but you’ll notice it in the sinking costs and reduced follow-up work. If a template is missing altogether or is not professionally constructed, the time required and associated costs for the master layout, updates and layout post-processing after translation grow exponentially.
Our key expertise is templates that strengthen the layout consistently, display properly formatted target languages after translation, and enable cost-effective migrations. Certain services tend to remain hidden but have a major impact on time and costs throughout the life cycle of a publication. With Scriptor’s expertise and templates for technical documentation publications, you get the strategy and implementation from a single source.
To ensure the best design for your publications, we create technically robust templates for MS Word, Adobe InDesign and FrameMaker, as well as for SCHEMA ST4 with the Page Layout Designer (PLD) for print publications and the Online Media Designer (OMD) for e-publications.
Even in times of increasing automation, we offer you technically flawless templates for MS Word, Adobe FrameMaker and InDesign. All paragraph and character formats for implementing the requirements from the structural concept and the layout ideas from the layout concept are defined here. Our template development service is strengthened by our experience gained from decades of desktop publishing, since Ventura and Pagemaker.
SCHEMA ST4 templates
Centralised control of layouts using templates for print and e-publications is a highlight of SCHEMA ST4. Once it’s created, a template can be used for all your technical publications. We create templates in SCHEMA ST4 for different types of documentation (such as instructions, data sheets, flyers and catalogues, and different publication channels) using ST4’s Page Layout Designer (PLD) for print publications and the Online Media Designer (OMD) for e-publications. The publication of all translations with the same template results in enormous cost and time savings. You benefit from our experience in classic DTP templates, knowledge of good document layouts, and professional SCHEMA ST4 know-how. We design the best strategy for you, implement your template optimally, and ensure the proper publication.
