ABOUT KINDLE FORMATTING
With the remarkable increase in the number of people using e-readers, tablets, portable computers, successful publishers and authors must produce their publications in formats which are readable by these diverse technologies. Kindle formatting entails conversion of e-book manuscripts from PDF, Microsoft Word or any other digital format to a file format specifically designed for Amazon Kindle devices. Even though PDF and Microsoft Word documents can be viewed on Kindle devices, they cannot be rendered in a reflowing-text presentation. Such documents therefore have to be converted to provide a fluid reading experience for Kindle users.
Why Automated Kindle Conversion Software Never Work?
Sometimes publishers and authors make ill-advised attempts to convert their books from PDF or Word to Kindle format by themselves. This is usually done through programs available online that promise to perform this task quickly and efficiently. The end results however are never satisfactory, and in most cases they produce rendered files that look messy and unreadable. This is due to several factors;
To begin with, E-books usually contain page breaks similar to those found the hard-cover print versions of published works. Such breaks are included in the title page, table of contents and the book chapters. These breaks provide a clearly spaced outline which effectively separates different portions of the book and helps to maintain a visually appealing flow. This is extremely difficult to achieve using most of the ebook conversion programs available in the market. Such software normally produce cluttered running text with no visible breaks that is almost impossible to read. As a result, even books that are excellently written end up being bothersome to read. This can ultimately lead to unwarranted negative reviews for a publisher or author.
E-books can also contain unique graphical elements embedded within the text body such as images, tables, footnotes, endnotes and hyperlinks. These elements need to be skillfully incorporated into the e-book in the exact manner intended by the author. Automated conversion tools frequently produce e-books with poorly positioned graphic elements and in some cases a few elements may end up being omitted unintentionally during the conversion process. E-books in the modern era are also expected to have a clickable table of contents. This feature enables readers to easily navigate through sections of the book by simply clicking on the relevant chapters within the table of contents. It is however impossible to integrate this feature when using an automated conversion tool.
The process of converting e-books from PDF or Microsoft Word formats to a Kindle version that is both easy to read and properly structured is highly technical and it involves a great amount of expertise. At Ebookifi, we will go the extra mile by manually coding each chapter of your book using HTML and CSS to ensure that the structure of the Kindle version retains the same arrangement as it appears on your manuscript. This will ensure that all your clients get exactly what they paid for when they purchased your e-book.
Which Manuscript Formats are preferred for Kindle Conversion? Word or PDF File Formats?
At Ebookifi, we provide kindle formatting services covering a wide range of digital text formats. The formats we are able to work with include PDF, Adobe Indesign, Microsoft Word documents, plain text and files from all open-source word processors. If you happen to have your manuscript in both PDF and Microsoft Word formats, we would prefer to receive the Word files to facilitate quicker delivery.
We also advise our clients to only submit the final edited manuscripts for conversion so as to prevent the inclusion of typographical errors in the Kindle format of their e-book. Kindly contact us if you have any unique formats other than the ones listed above that you would want us to convert.
SEE OUR SAMPLES
To give you a glimpse of what you can expect from Ebookifi with regards to Kindle formatting, you can take a look at the samples we have uploaded showing examples of books that have been converted for Kindle by us.
Books usually contain several different fonts throughout the text to highlight certain points or introduce chapters. Such fonts can however be lost during conversion making the whole text to appear in one flat uniform font. Our conversion techniques involve font embedding to ensure that all the fonts contained in your manuscript look exactly the same in the Kindle format. The samples below will show you how this is achieved.
E-books can be published using two layout styles; the reflow or fixed layout. These styles differ on how they are displayed on e-book readers. Our conversion methods ensure that all graphic elements of your e-book such as images, tables, hyperlinks and graphs are retained in the Kindle version precisely as they appear in your manuscript. This will be done regardless of whether you opt for a reflowing text format of a fixed layout format. Check out the samples below to see how this is done.
REFLOW VS FIXED LAYOUT KINDLE FORMATTING
Reflowable format: This is the most widely used format for e-books. This format enables the reader to adjust the size of each page without affecting the flow of the text. It makes it easier for a reader to zoom into a page or even change its orientation to suit their specific reading preferences. A book published using the reflow format can thus be read on gadgets with different screen sizes quite easily since the text will automatically adjust itself to fit different screens.
Fixed layout formats are less common and they feature mostly in books containing a lot of images such as children’s books and comics. Such books are structured to display full-sized pages at all times. The images and text are therefore placed at fixed points next to each other. If a reader zooms into a fixed layout page, the contents won’t automatically adjust themselves to fit the screen size. One has to zoom into specific portions of the page separately to read the book.
The automatic pricing feature on our website is only applicable for conversions done in the reflowing text format. If your e-book requires a fixed-layout presentation, kindly contact us or use quote form for the specific pricing.
