Epub Conversion Services
As readers ourselves, we appreciate the importance of an eBook that’s properly formatted; this is why we work our hardest to ensure all eBooks look great before becoming available to customers using our epub conversions services. With a passion for the industry and extensive experience, we can help with all your formatting needs. After receiving your PDF/document, we can insert a logical advanced navigation, a custom style sheet, and provide a keen eye to ensure it’s compliant with all the relevant standards (while also looking great!).
In return, you’ll receive a formatted ePub file which can be used by Apple, Sony, Barnes & Noble, and more. Our industry experience allows for fantastic advice, as well as working with your cover art and improving the overall look and feel of the book!
Why ePub Formatting?
Essentially, the word ‘formatting’ describes the programming process since the many e-readers and reading devices tend to use different software when displaying content. In addition to this, we must adhere to industry standard file formats which means converting to HTML. To meet the demands of each font size, font, and customizable display options, your book needs to be formatted correctly so your readers have the best experience; the days of uploading a PDF are over!
How does it work?
We code your document in HTML which means that every detail will be placed correctly. If necessary, we can also set up your book in a way that allows users to jump from one chapter to another, move between pages, and zoom in and out.
We Strictly Follow IDPF Standards for ePub Conversion
Before publishing a book, it’s great to have a neutral pair of eyes look it over and ePub validation is something with which we can help. We follow the IDPF standard for ePub conversion and the output is validated over ePubcheck 4.2. With this in mind, no error will go unnoticed whether in internal references, mark-ups, or container structure.
Input formats that we work on.
- Microsoft Word
- Open Office (odt)
- Adobe PDF
- HTML and Text
- Adobe InDesign
ePub vs ePub3 Formatting
In all, improvements can be found with navigation, semantic inflection, content switching, audio and video, MathML, triggers, media overlays, extra modules from CSS3, text-to-speech, remote resources, and more.
EPUB 2 works with just raster images. On the other hand, EPUB 3 has the ability to support audio and video.
Fixed Layout ePub Formatting
Normally, with eBook files, they have a ‘reflowable’ feature which means the presentation adapts depending on the device the user has. However, fixed-layout eBooks are quickly becoming more popular. Why? They maintain their graphic design on all devices which makes them ideal for any books with heavy formatting; this includes cookbooks, children’s picture books, travel books, and even textbooks.
Wherever an eBook contains fixed aspect ratios, illustrations, artistic photography, or multi-column text page, fixed-layout formatting is likely to recommend to provide the best experience for readers.
