In the field of document translation, DTP refers to the adjustment of translated material in accordance with the formatting of source material or a client's specifications. In the first instance, DTP formatting of source material is fully maintained in the translated document to the last detail; in the second instance, formatting complies with requirements prescribed by the client. As a result, a client receives formatted documents as required.
