We are professionals at creating technical and marketing text. We work from Czech to foreign languages and vice versa. In addition to our own in-house employees, we work with experienced copywriters who have a refined feel for language. Unlike typical translators, they work with imagination and knowledge of the local market. After more than 20 years of experience, we are specialists in creating technical manuals, especially user manuals for various kinds of products. We create the manuals in keeping with the harmonized European guidelines and government regulations (more on the certifications and awards page). In addition to creating completely new technical texts and illustrations, we also offer auditing of your existing manuals. When necessary, we will rework them and then keep them up to date. Manuals for mechanical engineering, electronics, agriculture and information technology are just some of what we do.
We provide professional-level translations. We provide translations into more than 50 languages, have a team on staff and collaborate with 1,000 outside translators. In their work, our translators use the latest translation software, SDL Trados, of which we are an authorized seller. This software works with translation memory, which ensures consistent use of terminology in any language for all your documents. Our specialties include technical translations, instructions, manuals and documentation, especially schematics and print advertising materials. We can provide you with any language combination — even unusual languages.
Graphics and type
We provide you with creative graphic design for a complete visual style, from logos, to internal company and advertising materials, and even websites, 3d modelling and Flash presentations. Closest to our hearts is production of photo wall calendars, catalogues and other illustrated publications where the emphasis is on high-quality photography. Our graphic design and print technology have received awards in many competitions (more in the section on certifications and awards). Naturally, quality typography is part of any good print material. The employees in our DTP department focus on the quality of their workmanship and, together with the translation department, ensure adherence to typesetting rules for individual languages. We digitally archive your data and store it indefinitely, in case you want to reorder.
Z Studio is a certified printer for hybrid print products. We work with our own state-of-the-art digital and offset technology, as well as special “digital offset” technology (more on the “About us” page). We also offer unique Hi-Fi printing® offset technology. Our CtP department has a stable, fully automated exposure terminal with a modern prepress PDF workflow. We thoroughly inspect your data, optimize it for printing, and prepare page signatures for offset printing.
Z STUDIO offers a full range of binding and printing services for all types of material. In our own bookbindery, using machines and manual equipment, we assemble, glue, stitch, perforate, laminate, comb bind and more.
Our kitting department assembles your printed matter into kits and packages to include further print materials, samples or small promotional items at your request. We are flexible about packaging — paper, tubes, shrink wrap, boxes or whatever you choose.
Logistics and storage
We store and ship to the Czech Republic and beyond. At your request, we assemble addressed or unaddressed packets. We offer online inventory and e-shop management. You decide the package quantity, how much to warehouse and where, and how much of it we should deliver to you. We even have our own warehouses and vehicle fleet. We can transport larger orders or send them through certified carriers. Our sales reps can also arrange for you to pick them up personally from our shipping department.
We have our own professionally equipped photo studio offering product photography, retouching, complete colour correction and image montages.
