With eBooks having become a phenomenon of sorts, does ePub even need an introduction? From allowing interactive multimedia elements to flexibility for reading on multiple devices and creating accessible publications; it has all the much needed features to be one of most popular eBook formats in today’s e-publishing world. These capabilities has made ePub the preferred standard for a global digital education solution provider in Australia to develop, deliver, and disseminate learning content in their digital leaning platform.
The scope of project involved conversion of InDesign Atlas files to ePub. There were 2 books, one containing 275 pages and the other 480 pages. A significant challenge was in switching all the maps from double-page spread to eBook layout (present in about 200 pages). Most of the images had unnecessary layers and unwanted elements that needed fixing. The final stage involved archiving the resulting content in CMS Vault. The whole project was time-sensitive with restricted deadlines to complete the tasks.
Regardless of the challenges present, diacriTech conversion team’s competency laid the groundwork for the project’s success. Their perseverance at all stages from start to finish enabled to maintain the client’s short-term target without compromising on the quality and the due process. With good base knowledge in image and text extraction process and hands on manual coding experience in HTML and CSS, the team was adept to retrieve the source files and perform the ePub conversion applying the global style sheet. Quality assurance is important for digital atlases to render perfectly on client’s digital learning platform. Against client specific checklists, quality checking was performed in the platform to check reading view. Validation was done using standard tools and finally QA process was performed using industry best practices to ensure high standards in reading experience. The InDesign and ePuB3 and files were archived in the CMS Vault to be published as needed.
The conversion work was delivered ahead of time, and the digital resources helped the client reach a large reader base in their learning platform.
