eBook Production Backwards: From EPUB to InDesign

eBook Production Backwards: From EPUB to InDesign | OER | Scoop.it

Recently I had an interesting conundrum. We released a title as an ebook which was due to be published in print in a few months’ time. It turned out that the files we had for this title were old image PDFs, and the quality really left something to be desired. We couldn’t exactly print it as it was, and rekeying the entire thing would be time consuming and expensive.

 

We did, however, have perfectly good ebook assets for this title, which we had made using OCR and some careful QA (quality assurance). This is probably something of a rarity, but it will no doubt become more and more common as backlist titles continue to be published as ebooks. At the very worst, we wouldn’t need to rekey because we had the text in a digital format. The problem, however, is that EPUB is a format InDesign can create (with a little help), but isn’t able to import.
