Scribe Inc. upgraded its XML publishing system, the Well-Formed Document Workflow (WFDW), with the implementation of the Digital Hub Version 2.0. The WFDW is a powerful, easy-to-use, and cost-effective XML workflow available to publishers of all sizes.

The WFDW produces publications for print and electronic, using common tools. The WFDW is driven by Scribe's web-based processing engine, the Digital Hub, which allows users to quickly convert files from one format to another and produce XML at the click of a button. Also included are Scribe's authoring and editing tools for Microsoft Word (the Scribe Add-In and its free counterpart, the Scribe Add-In Lite), and programs designed to enable true XML export from Adobe InDesign.

Using the WFDW allows publishers to produce print or e-book content with ease. Word files can be transformed automatically into InDesign Tagged Text (IDTT) for typesetting, using the Digital Hub, a simple and intuitive web-based interface. Any source material with a structured format can be readily converted into ePub, ePub 3, or Kindle files. The Digital Hub automatically handles images, tables, foreign languages, and notes. It adds features for optimal e-book navigation, including automated index linking.

Scribe's workflow is tried and tested throughout the industry. The upgraded version is faster, more robust, and more user friendly. The Digital Hub 2.0 optimizes an already well-established system, capitalizes on Scribe's long presence in the publishing industry, and makes the WFDW a workflow that publishers large and small can adopt with confidence.

Scribe is a US-based editorial, production, e-book, and workflow development company with locations in Philadelphia PA, Allentown PA, and Fort Lauderdale FL. The company has been in the publishing services industry for 21 years, has over 60 employees, and produces over 1,400 books a year.
