Structuring and organizing knowledge
Automated typesetting, multiple reuse of content in different media and publications, and electronic workflows are only a few of the challenges faced when creating publications. Editing processes are divided and organized into many different steps. Publishers today often rely on the data standard XML to simplify storage and management of content and optimize tracking and costs.
- SCHEMA has many years of experience in the area of editing solutions for publishers. With the editing and content management system SCHEMA ST4, we offer an XML tool tailored to the needs of this industry. SCHEMA ST4 features clear and easy-to-use applications, integration with familiar tools such as MS Word, the possibility to fall back on paper-based processes, and much more.
- SCHEMA ST4 is based on the concept of content and layout separation. User-friendly text editing with flexible text modules makes it easy to collaboratively create and update content. Content is stored for the automation of typesetting and for reuse in various contexts; it is stored not only in the publisher DTD but also in a comprehensive information model. SCHEMA ST4 makes the optimal use of created content possible, regardless of whether for loose-leaf publications, periodicals or monographs.
- All participants, from freelance authors to editors to producers, can participate seamlessly in the production process. Role-based participation and the possibility to track changes guarantee a high degree of process safety.
- The introduction of XML tools in publishing is possible only if the focus is on the user and quality requirements. We work with competent partners to find solutions for specific questions, such as XML workflows or interfaces with the typesetting process (e.g. Advent 3B2), offering our customers comprehensive support for interdisciplinary requirements.
