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.

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

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

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.

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.

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

Morning Courses

eXtyles Best Practices 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 handling of ever-more-complex publishing requirements and documents, managing pesky errors from Word or XML parsers, 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

Manipulating XML Content: the Concepts and Practice of XSLT

Presented by Mulberry Technologies

XSLT is comparatively easy transformation tool that turns XML into “something else,” giving you the flexible single-source publishing you want. If you have XML, you need XSLT!

Using XSLT you can: convert XML files into display formats (such as HTML and eBook); make XML into tool-specific formats (such as typesetting languages); extract just a little of your XML for a catalog, report, or shopping cart; and in the process automatically add numbering, cross-reference links, tables of contents, and generated text. XSLT can convert documents tagged according to your XML into documents tagged according to someone else’s tag set.

XSLT is a programming language (sounds scary), but you can read it, write it, and understand it without being a programmer. If you are a programmer, you need to know that XSLT is different but not difficult. If you’re a manager, you need to know what XSLT is good for. XSLT is easy to learn if you start with the data model and the processing model behind it. This introduction discusses the principles that underlie XSLT, introduces the data and processing models, demonstrates some XSLT transformations to highlight the sorts of things it is good for, and describes how XSLT is being used in a variety of environments.
