CHALLENGE: Convert older books to modern formats to expand into new markets
A leading global scientific publisher for more than 165 years, the company had a large backlist of titles in hard-copy and older PDF formats. It wanted to convert these titles into new PDF, XML, and eBook formats to introduce them to new markets.
The publisher realized that content conversions were not its core competence. It decided to outsource the entire task so it could maintain its focus on content development. Because it had a large volume of books to convert in a short period of time—70,000 titles over a 24-month period—the company needed to outsource the task to an expert it could trust.
