I am a web-designer and I am working right now for a Russian client.

I have to tell him that I will work now on the layout of the site. The translator give many options and don't know which is better in this context.

What do you suggest to translate layout for webdesign and graphic design context?

    Noticed today that MS Word uses word "Макет" to translate (Table) Layout.

My suggestions:
(web)site layout - макет сайта, оформление сайта
(web)page layout - макет страницы, разметка страницы
graphic design layout - макет, графический макет, макет изображения.

    макет сайта is temporary, unfinished work, preview. оформление сайта - more like 'design', 'look'.

It looks like you actually talking about "вёрстка" - if you mean the very process of translating psd-files (or whatever is drawn) to html, this is exactly the word you are looking for.

The coder who usually deals with such translations is called "верстальщик".

    Thank you for the information. Was more about making the layout of the website, in the meaning that the client can see the structure and the main aesthetic idea of the site. Thank you anyway! Nov 16, 2013 at 16:08
  • "Верстка" - это процесс написания markup, а не layout. Apr 11, 2017 at 11:41
