With eXtyles, we saw a quick and substantial return on our investment. We’ve not only saved time and improved the quality of our publications; we’ve also significantly cut our production costs.

Anne Vinnicombe

Vice President of Production and Electronic Publishing at Thieme Publishers New York

Setting aside the fact that eXtyles admirably performs as advertised, what I appreciate about the Inera team is that they come through on their promises: deliverables arrive when expected and run as expected. This sets them aside from many other software vendors.

Barry Bergin

Production Manager at American Concrete Institute

We find eXtyles to be an excellent partner because of their dedication to serving their customers.

Chris Hausler

Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Typefi Systems

Now that production sees how well the eXtyles conversion works, they wish they had done this years ago!

Jim Bender

XML IT Specialist at the United States Government Printing Office

We're definitely loving the advantage we're getting just straightening out references.

Larry Klein

Production Manager at the American Society for Microbiology

We don’t like to think back to the days when we didn’t have eXtyles for Optics Express production. We’re having great success with the software.

M. Scott Dineen

Director of Editorial Services at the Optical Society of America

Our return on investment in eXtyles is Inera’s commitment to the quality and adaptability of its product, the expertise of its staff, and the sincerity with which that staff interacts with its customers.

Peter Olson

Senior Copyediting Coordinator at Dartmouth Journal Services

eXtyles is the only tool we never consider changing or removing from our workflow.

Rob O'Donnell

Electronic Publishing and Production Director at Rockefeller University Press

It's a pleasure to promote eXtyles, as it really does magic in our documents.

Serge Juillerat

System Specialist at the International Organization for Standardization

People in our production working with eXtyles see something magical.

Morning Courses

eXtyles New and Advanced Feature Workshop

Presented by the Inera Staff

eXtyles continues to improve and expand, and even the most seasoned eXtyles user may be unaware of some of the newer features and enhancements. This half-day course is devoted to best practices and tips and tricks for getting the most out of eXtyles. Topics covered will include improvements to the user interface, new Cleanup tools, new Auto-Redact features, Auto-Styling options and improvements to the Paragraph Styling Palette, new modules for automated editing and content validation, and much more.


Word Tips for Editors

Presented by the Inera Staff

Most Word training courses focus on creating content, but editing content in Word requires an entirely different skill set. Inera offers Word Tips for Editors, a course specifically designed for the particular needs of editors. In this half-day course, participants learn tips to help get work done faster and more efficiently by using the powerful, advanced features of Microsoft Word. The curriculum includes customizing Word, shortcuts, document navigation, advanced features in Find and Replace, and editing tables.


Afternoon Course

Schematron for QA and Reporting

Presented by Mulberry Technologies

Schematron is a language for Quality Assurance and for ad hoc reporting on XML documents and collections of XML documents. With Schematron, users can identify all documents or portions of documents that have, or don't have, a particular structure, value, or pattern. For example, a user can find all of the documents with sections that lack titles (or have empty titles), list all of the documents that have more than 25 figures, or show all of the figures that were never referenced. Schematron can identify things that may be valid XML but that are often incorrect, or at least worth examination. Schematron can be used for reporting as well; for example, how many of the authors in a particular journal are members of the sponsoring society, or which articles in an encyclopedia have no citations less than five years old.

Even if you already use a DTD or XSD, Schematron can provide a fast, customizable means of validating your XML even further, with pinpoint reporting of values and value ranges, as well as the presence or absence of elements and attributes, while also checking co-constraints and other hard-to-crack edge cases.
