Typesetting: quality control & LaTeX expertise

Our main production environment is LaTeX. Using this document preparation system and markup language, we structure and enrich an original compuscript, and generate all required deliverables from it as a single source.

According to publisher requirements, we can prepare a full-text XML conforming to a specific DTD, just metadata XML, or XML containing all the required elements of an article and supplementary materials.

At VTeX, a number of DTDs are currently supported by the standard production workflow where any other DTD can be virtually implemented on request. With our converters, the XML format can be transformed into HTML or E-PUB. All required deliverables (online content, print and web PDFs, EPUBs, XML+MathML, HTML, etc.) are generated out of one enriched source — the LaTeX production file.

 

Language editing & artwork preparation

Typesetting services are accompanied by the graphic material preparation service according to the publisher’s requirements and optional language editing service.

Academic content usually has complex illustrations, diagrams, or charts. When it comes to graphic material preparation, our electronic data managers re-size, re-draw, and re-letter graphic content, if it does not satisfy the requirements of the publisher. If necessary, we re-label text and/or re-draw illustrations, maintaining consistency in labels and sizing. All graphic materials are improved according to the publisher’s requirements.

Since our main production tool is LaTeX, language editing is made directly to a LaTeX file. All of VTeX language editors are native speakers and experts in STM fields. We have experience with manuscripts that are written in English, German, and other languages.
