Embedded index entries
It is an enormous challenge to give users access to relevant information in books and other contained publications. The index at the end of a book has been the main search engine for books for over 500 years. With embedded text-integrated index tags (embedded index entries), you can enable efficient and precise search to your quality digital content. Linked indexes — via embedded indexing — is increasingly necessary for added value in this digital age.
Software for different workflows
Index-Managers flexible interface supports different workflows.
Provide your authors an innovative and modern indexing tool, or if indexing work has to be done in-house, integrate your author’s knowledge and other preliminary work for the choice of index terms and headings:
The innovative word list functions allow for systematic indexing. Powerful filter options enable display according to paragraph and character formats, or word lists. For well-structured manuscripts, you can use index terms culled from manuscripts headings.
All indexing work is logged in a separate file until export. This separate logging allows other tasks – like copyediting and proofreading – to be accomplished in parallel. Working parallel on the data enables you to publish earlier and to always be one step ahead.
Once index entries are embedded into the manuscript, they become available even after changes and for future editions, saving you money on all future products.
XML and Index-Manager
Your production process is XML-based.
We can adapt Index-Manager to your DTD, and define the structure of XML-tags for your index entries and cross-references.
