Please see some samples from our typesetting works
Our preferred typesetting program is LaTeX, because
it's the best in professional typesetting for technical and
scientific documents, but our people are proficient also in using all
major Desktop Publishing programs: InDesign®, Quark Express®,
Adobe Acrobat®, Corel Draw®, Page Maker®, Illustrator®, Photoshop®,
Corel Ventura® etc. on Windows®, Linux® and Macintosh® platforms.
We have laid out hundreds of technical books and
journals on mathematics, computer science, physics, engineering,
biomedicine and chemistry. We have typeset many difficult to run
TeX/LaTeX files and we are experienced in solving mixed STM books and journals
(containing both LaTeX and Word files).
Our editorial team provides specialized technical
support for editorial departments, from the typing and typesetting
stage to final corrections and indexing, through to generating
error-free output (DVI-PS-PDF), as well as solving many other
editorial tasks like accurate PDF to DOC conversions, graphics
conversions, redrawing of artworks etc. We are prepared to solve
complicated projects at short notice.
We provide also German typesetting and technical / non-technical
translations (German-English, English-German).
We have different rates
corresponding to the different stages of the editorial
production. Please note that our rates are especially for
technical books and journals that are very complex and which
represents most of our projects. Of course we can discuss on a case by
case basis for not-so-complex type of works.
