Hi,

I have created an e-book guide with screenshots and easy to follow step by step instructions for carrying out checks on InDesign files before exporting them to INX ready for translation.
The guide is aimed at translators and translation agencies that are requested to translate Indesign files but do not have access to in-house desktop publishers to prepare files for them.

Would anyone here be interested in reviewing my e-book before I release it next week?

I am looking for both experienced and novice users of InDesign and the answers I am hoping to get back are:
- Does that guide achieve its aim of helping people prepare InDesign files for translation?
- Is the guide easy enough to follow regardless of the reader's experience?
- Your general opinion of the guide

So far the guide has only been reviewed by people who know me or work for me and even though the feedback has been very positive I would prefer unbiased feedback that I can use as reference and so I can be sure the guide will really be helpful to anyone who reads it.

If interested just post back here and I will send you the e-book via e-mail. It is 2.5 MB in PDF format.

Thanks
Chris

Got it! Jan 12, 2009

Thanks Chris, I'll have a look at it. I passed it on to a member of our DTP department as well, as she is the one responsible of preparing the majority of the files for translation. I'll forward her comments to you as well.

Received, Thanks! Jan 12, 2009

Dear Chris,

I have so quickly looked throght it.

It is really addressing the fundamentals and it is in essence: handy, time saving, straight to the point for translators beginning to use InDesign. I myself also learned some meticulous points as well.

I am sure you will come up with some meticulous fine tuning before publishing and I will forward my comments after reading it.

Best regards,

Saeid
