A guest presentation from XUG 2019
Publishing isn’t just for publishers! Governments, NGOs, professional associations, and other entities also create and produce publications—but may be subject to rules and mandates that traditional publishers are not. Their publications often don’t fall into the categories of books, journals, and standards, so why try to impose tools and workflows designed for those categories? Unique and specialized publications need workflows and solutions purpose-built for them.
Inera’s editorial and XML solutions have a proven track record with government and legal publishers such as the US Government Publishing Office, General Code, the State Bar of Wisconsin, and Djøf Forlag (the publisher of the Danish Association of Lawyers and Economists). We’re experienced in navigating bidding and procurement processes, collaborating with other vendors, and balancing technical, legal, and political considerations when managing workflow change.
Now that production sees how well the eXtyles conversion works, they wish they had done this years ago!
What are the four paths to XML? These slides from Bruce Rosenblum and Typefi’s Chandi Perera explore a key workflow question—When and where should you introduce XML into your workflow: during authoring, before editing, before composition, or after publication?—and cover the pros and cons of each approach, including case studies with an emphasis on lessons learned from workflow failures and successes.
