Magazine translation services

Comtec work with magazine publishing houses and companies that require magazines translated for marketing or internal communications. Magazine translations can require a range of services including translation and localisation, transcreation, professional copywriting and desktop publishing.

Text is not the only consideration when translating magazines. Images and graphics may also require localisation to reflect cultural preferences and sensitivities. Our desktop publishing team are adept at adjusting artwork, fonts and layouts to ensure text expansion, different character sets and culture differences do not adversely affect the visual impact of the translated magazine.

Magazines often contain a diverse range of content – articles, news items, editorial comment, photo stories, crosswords and puzzles – each with different styles and tone. Comtec handpick native speaking linguists with specialist experience to handle magazine translations, preserving the integrity of the source text and author’s tone and style.
