Typesetting and Desktop Publishing Service in Flemish

Hero Curve Element

Working together with our experienced and qualified translators, voiceover artists, interpreters, audiovisual translators, transcribers and subtitlers, we offer a wide range of language services.

Available in over 200 languages within the UK and beyond, our linguists can get you heard in any language of your choice. While we do not offer a walk-in service, we are only one phone call away from discussing your language requirements.

Your documents typeset by experts and checked by Flemish linguists

If we are provided with the source text in a standard, fully editable format such as Word or Excel and asked to produce a translation in any language, then this is straightforward.

If however the translation needs to fit within a layout that combines elements such as text, numerical data, photographs, illustrations, other graphics and special formatting, then you may need the help of one of our typesetters.

Just let us know how we can help you.

What information would we need from you?

  1. What language is your source document?
  2. What is the subject matter?
  3. As translated texts don’t always take-up the same amount of room, have you taken this into account with the design of your document so that it will accommodate versions in different languages such as Flemish?
  4. Remember some languages read from right to left.  Will your design allow for right to left reading languages?
  5. What software package have you used to design the original?  Are you able to send us the source files, including any pictures or graphics?
  6. How many words is your source document?
  7. How many pages is your typeset version?
  8. Would you require the translated typeset version to be proofread by a native speaker after the typesetting stage?

Which languages read from right to left?

The main languages are:

  • Arabic
  • Aramaic
  • Azeri
  • Dhivehi/Maldivian
  • Hebrew
  • Kurdish (Sorani)
  • Persian/Farsi
  • Urdu

What will our Flemish proofreaders consider?

Our proofreaders will carefully check the formatting of a document to ensure that sentences don’t appear twice, a word has not been cut off inappropriately, headings are in bold if they should be, titles to illustrations have not been omitted.  This is especially important post desktop publishing or typesetting.

How is the cost for Flemish typesetting calculated?

  • The cost depends on the number of pages
  • The cost depends on the complexity of the layout

While you’re here… some quite interesting facts about the Flemish language.

Flemish also called Flemish Dutch, Belgian Dutch, or Southern Dutch, is any of the varieties of the Dutch language dialects spoken in Flanders, the northern part of Belgium,by approximately 6.5 million people. They differ to some extent from the Dutch spoken in the Netherlands in terms of intonation and pronunciation, and there are minor differences in vocabulary, including loanwords from French and English not found in Standard Dutch. Linguistically and formally, “Flemish” refers to the region, culture and people of (North) Belgium or Flanders. Flemish people speak (Belgian) Dutch in Flanders, the Flemish part of Belgium. “Belgian Dutch” is slightly different from Dutch spoken in The Netherlands, mainly in pronunciation, lexicon and expressions. Dutch speakers from the Netherlands and Dutch speakers from Belgium may not be able to communicate fluently with each other because Flemish uses different nouns and different pronunciation, and has evolved at a different pace from modern Dutch.

Where is Flemish most widely spoken?

Belgium, Netherlands and France.
