Prepress is used in the publishing industries for the processes and procedures that occur between the creation of a print layout and the final printing. Extel use “Quark, Indesign, TeX and LaTeX” platforms for typesetting.
After you submit your manuscript to Extel, a production editor will be assigned to your book. That person will work closely with you and various book production specialists to ensure that your book moves through the following stages of production as smoothly as possible.
Extel Solutions offer to convert their content from various data sources in any format (such as MS Word, PDF, InDesign, Image, Hard copy) to epub format with your desire of the below options.
A copy editor will edit your manuscript electronically, line by line, using the revisions (track changes) feature in Word. You will then be e-mailed the copyedited manuscript and have an opportunity to review the edits, answer queries, and make any necessary changes before typesetting.
The edited manuscript is laid out in pages, which will be sent to you, a proofreader, an indexer, and usually any contributors to the book.
The page proofs are read not only by you but also by a professional proofreader, who corrects errors missed (or introduced) in the copyediting stage. You and the proofreader will return the corrected pages to the production editor, who submits them to the typesetter for correction. The production editor then reviews the revised proofs to ensure that all corrections have been made.
Depending on your agreement with Extel, the index will be created either by you or by a professional indexer, working from the revised page proofs.
The final page-layout files are sent to the printer by the Publisher.
Digital Formats (eBook PDF, ePub & Mobi)
Once the printer files are approved, we will then create the eBook PDF, ePub, Mobi based on the discrete decision of the publisher.
