Content Development

Our staff works with authors and publishers to help create or enhance content for books, journals, and other publications. With an eye on the budget and schedule, we ensure the customer’s expectations are met through the course of the project.

Permissions - We perform a thorough assessment of manuscripts to identify any third-party material that would require permission or be considered fair use/public domain, including text, line art, and photos. We then work with the rights holders to obtain the customer’s minimum permission requirements, negotiate fees, and maintain detailed records.


Content Writing - Our subject matter experts create content for a wide range of products across genres—writing first edition test preparation guides, making major or minor revisions to a product, creating ancillaries (e.g., flashcards, PowerPoints, Instructor Guides). We also create alternate text for images and tables, thereby making content accessible for visually challenged readers.


Photo Research - Our researchers can secure photographs and illustrations via stock agencies, news services, libraries, museums, etc. to enhance content.

Editorial Services

We offer a wide range of editorial services including copy editing, proofreading, accuracy checking, and publication management services to ensure that our clients publish high-quality content in a cost-efficient manner.

Project Management - A project manager is assigned to work as an extension of the publisher, working closely with authors and other project team members, to guide the content through each phase of the publishing process with strict quality, time, and cost standards.


Copy Editing and Proofreading - Our team of highly skilled and qualified copy editors edit, format, and rewrite text when necessary. In addition to language editing, we also offer style sheet creation services, editorial proofreading, accuracy checking, and creation of abstracts.


Indexing - Indexers on our team use a generous mix of automated tools and logical reasoning to create an index. We offer back-of-the-book indexes (subject, name, author, geography, symbol, list of cases, and case studies) for a wide range of subjects.

Design and Graphics

The designers at S4Carlisle work closely with supporting teams to design a single-source, multi-format compatible design to achieve the right kind of end deliverables—be it print, online, or digital publishing.

Our illustrators are adept at creating complex, multi-color line-art, situational illustrations, mathematical graphs, maps, and chemical artwork with the utmost precision and quality.

Whether you need a new image to be created from a spec or substantial edits made to an existing image (e.g., colorizing, color conversion, relabeling), our illustrators can help.

Composition

We help our publishing partners create rich, value-added content for global audiences using the latest software and automated composition solutions. We offer high-quality, quick-turnaround typesetting services with XML-first or XML-last workflows for books, journals, technical documents, and magazine production.

Interactive Media

Game-Based Learning - S4Carlisle helps global publishers with expertise and capabilities in building immersive games, simulations, games within digital products, interactive games, and gamification strategies. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to adopting game-based learning and at S4Carlisle, we help publishers incorporate games into their product roadmap by taking into consideration learning effectiveness, learner engagement, and return-on-investment.

Animation - Our graphic designers and animation specialists can convert static images into engaging 2D or 3D images. They begin by developing a storyboard and use that as a base to develop 2D or 3D images. Animations, if needed, are added to the image to help achieve learning outcomes.

Companion Websites - We help set up companion websites for books on publisher’s proprietary platforms that are compatible with all major devices. The websites are developed based on the original print content and contain interactive media such as graphics, animations (2D/3D), simulations, and GBL to engage students outside the classroom and allow them to study at their own pace.

Flash to Html5 Conversions - At S4Carlisle, Flash to HTML5 migration is a mature practice. Our team of skilled developers, programmers, and graphic designers work with top global higher education publishers and leading corporates. We help transform content in terms of user experience (UX), graphics, and interactivities to allow for a better experience across all browsers and devices.

Video (Post Production) - We provide post-production video services where raw video footage is edited and packaged into the final cut to meet learning outcomes or objectives. Based on the brief provided, the post-production process will add additional sound effects, background audio, subtitling, animations, and image overlays onto the video to enhance the learning value of the content.

E-book Development and Conversion

We specialize in development and conversion of digital content that is designed to be responsive and “born accessible”.

Our graphic artists and animation specialists can provide interactive features that enhance learner engagement including audio, video, gamification, tap-to-zoom, 2D or 3D, or interactive animations. The e-books can be deployed with DRM (Digital Rights Management) software to prevent piracy or unauthorized usage.

AudioBook Development

Print books can be converted to audio books of various formats such as MP3, WMA and AAC. Audio books can be recorded using various voice talents-from native language speakers to specific accents from certain geographies.

Data Management

We have extensive experience in data management and technology services for content—file conversion, scanning, manual keying, custom DTD development and XML technologies.

Translation And Localisation

Our team of translators can support over 60 international languages and are trained to localize content. We streamline the process of technical translation to provide you with international quality output while keeping your costs under control. Our DTP expertise covers a wide range of publishing software such as Acrobat, AutoCAD, Flash, Illustrator, InDesign, and PageMaker.

Accessible Content

The accessible files we create comply with laws and regulations in the United States and the European Union. We use the following guidelines when creating accessible files:

  • Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 A & AA
  • Structure Guidelines for DAISY 3
  • Epub3 1.0 Accessibility Guidelines
  • Section 508
  • All other regulations promulgated under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act As Amended (ADAAA)

Custom Publishing

S4Carlisle’s web-based custom publishing engine, S.N.A.P. (Search Navigate Assemble Publish), helps publishers efficiently create customized content. With its easy-to-use, drag-and-drop interface, S.N.A.P. helps course creators and consumers pick chapters, or even individual sections from the chapters they need, and assemble them quickly into various formats, including printed books. One can also choose from a list of designs (text and covers) to give custom books a brand new look with a consistent feel. With built-in permissions logs, custom publishing has never been simpler.
