Hi! lately we had done translation for a customer with many comics and bubbled dialogues and converted them into real spoken dialogues supplying the text for the purpose of subtitling. Now he wants an e-book that runs in a browser. Any ideas and experienced hands there! I thank you for your attention. BR Brandis

Thank you.. Feb 25, 2009

Hi! I am very much aware of this solution since two years but did not catch the idea how one can do it and deliver as a book. The customer might be intending to put it on the webserver if not run on a local lan or even on an i-pod (this seems to be the latest trend these days). i was infact seeking a solution how one can routinise it, when all the pre-work has been done and can be compiled in one or two steps. As a matter of the principle it is like a pre-press solution for remote printing only the printing is digital and goes to media instead to the paper. I thank you all the same. One small correction, these are movie e-books and not written. That was a lot of work. Once I master this I shall certainly comeback with a bette solution. BR Brandis

I really like the format of MultiLingual Magazine. A company called Texterity is in charge of the digital edition--it is probably much more expensive than using Adobe but maybe not.

Here are some examples:

Old post, but maybe this can help others:
