The Welsh Government

The Client

The Welsh Government is the devolved government for Wales, led by the first minister. It works across devolved areas that include key areas of public life such as health, education, and the environment.


The Challenge

The Welsh Government requested translation of A4 InDesign posters into the following 19 languages:

By translating the posters into multiple languages, the Welsh Government can reach more people and make sure everyone feels included. The translations need to be correct, respectful of different cultures, and visually attractive, while still keeping the original message and design. By providing translations, the Welsh Government shows that they care about including everyone and making information accessible to all.


















Document Translation Service Files

Welsh Project Files

The original files were a combination of the following formats:

InDesign files are typically used for designing and formatting documents, such as posters, brochures, or flyers. However, They contain various graphical elements, text boxes, and layout settings that allow for precise control over the design and presentation of the content.

In addition, PDF files, on the other hand, are commonly used for distributing documents in a fixed format that preserves the layout and visual appearance across different platforms and devices. PDF files are often created from InDesign or other design software to ensure that the document’s intended design and formatting remain intact.
