For translation that can get ugly, especially when you remember that German translations are about 30% longer than their English counterparts. Really, based on experience, you want to give translators graphic files they donât have to edit. Technology may have improved matters since I last dealt with it, but translating graphics adds a lot of time, expensive, and possibility of error. Text can be automatically sucked out of the files, and then reimported. Graphics are much more manual.
