Typesetting Process for Book Printing Projects
Origin:Image Printing  Data: 4/9/2011  Keywords: Book Printing Projects

The core business of a typesetter for book printing projects is text processing. This could mean rekeying manuscripts at very low rates or taking the disks supplied by the authors and incorporating editorial corrections from the marked-up hard copy.

 They may simply produce typeset pages from fully coded disks supplied by the publisher, or convert the publishers file to XML after a book is printed; or they may digitize the backlist. There is a diminished role for typesetters in a world where designers supply the finished files. The typesetters that remain specialize in the larger, more complex jobs, such as legal and science or medical reference books, and, being labor intensive, much of this work is carried out in countries such as India. Some publishers supply authors with templates, however, and so for text books the authors essentially typeset the book as they write. Some firms offer additional editorial and design services while others concentrate on highly technical material or text database management. The vast number of titles with no or minimal illustrations do not require designers to layout the pages the typesetters largely automated pagination systems do it for the publishers. They can generally take a 100,000-word manuscript and submit page proofs to a publisher within two weeks - much faster if supplied with coded disks.

Typesetters use a variety of applications, such as QuarkXPress and Adobe InDesign. Only typesetters who have specialist-trained staff operate the very expensive and sophisticated programs designed especially for academic books and journals (such as Arbortext Advanced Print Publisher - formerly 3B2). LaTeX, pronounced laytek, is an open source program with many variants, designed by mathematicians in Chicago for authors of physics and mathematics to present their papers and books full of equations in an attractive way. The typesetter will supply paper proofs or PDF files for checking by the publisher and author. The publisher will usually ask the typesetter to convert the output of its pagination systems into PostScript (PS) files or PDF files. Where PostScript is a page description language, a programming language, PDF is a particular file format; it can contain fonts, images, printing instructions, keywords for searching and indexing, interactive hyperlinks, and movies (adobe. com). From such files printers are able to output text and graphics straight to plate.
