About Patrick

I have been a Desktop Publisher for around 20 years. Most of my work has been layout formatting with different languages in many different applications. Layout applications I have used over the years include InDesign, FrameMaker 7, 9 and 10, MS Office, Dreamweaver (CS3), Illustrator and Photoshop. Document types I have worked with include in catalogues, brochures, books, technical manuals (50-1500 pages), MSDS sheets and flyers. I also have web experience with HTML, CSS, some and JavaScript. Currently I am attending UW Milwaukee for my Bachelor of Science degree in Information Science and Technology. The language companies I have worked with are located across the United States. They include GlobeLink Foreign Language Center (Colorado), Interpro (Illinois), Language Scientific (Massachusetts), Assist Translation (Ohio), Adam's Globilization (Texas), McNeil Multilingual, Inc. (Virginia), International Communication by Design (Wisconsin), and Iverson Language Associates (Wisconsin).

Working with so many different DTP applications, I have a wealth of knowledge I can offer on formatting. While most of my work has been with languages, I have had to learn how to use these applications as well. If you are looking to learn how format documents using the tools available in Adobe InDesign or MS Word don't hesitate to contact me. One requirement I have is that you have the software on your Mac or Windows machine as I do not tutor out of my home. If interested, contact me to discuss what you would like to cover and I can plan material out a head of time to bring along.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Adobe InDesign

To effectively use InDesign an understanding of how to use the various tools of the application is a necessity. As a Desktop Publisher for 20 years+ I have most every version of the software. While each project is unique every user should understand how to use Master Pages, Guide Lines to ensure alignment, create hyperlinks, text boxes, graphic boxes, alignment, how to properly export a PDF.

My familiarity with InDesign in the work place often has me training new employee and providing insight to other already experienced Desktop Publishers on using InDesign to get the most out of the program.

Desktop Publishing

I have worked for the last 20 years with a variety of Desktop Publishing applications that include MS Word, Adobe InDesign (versions CS5 through the current version CC 2014), Adobe FrameMaker, MS PowerPoint and occasionally MS Publisher. I need to be familiar with so many different applications because I work at a language company and clients can provide content in many different formats. To desktop publish the different languages there also can be a requirement for modifying images in both Adobe illustrator and Photoshop that involves not only placement of the translated text but cleanup of images so that the translation can be placed.
