Making content widely accessible, searchable, and portable means making it digital.

Reinvigorating static content

Whatever the original format, be it a combination of analog and digital files or content trapped in outdated application file formats, Aptara can transform it into dynamic digital content ready for distribution to any output: eBooks, PDFs, digital journals, interactive electronic technical manuals (IETMs), websites, interactive textbooks—even print.

From any format, to any format

In-house attempts at data conversion can be slow, labor intensive and expensive, and retrofitting legacy content takes time away from creating new content.

Aptara transforms millions of pages of electronic and printed material every year. The conversion process is overseen by subject matter experts to ensure that your content remains relevant and meaningful—as well as secure, searchable, and ready for use on digital devices.

Scanning, imaging, digitizing

Aptara also offers end-to-end document scanning and imaging solutions using optical character recognition (OCR) technology. Scanning resolutions from 72 to 1,200 dpi yield output in TIFF, PNG, JPEG2000, SVG, JPEG, GIF, and other formats.

And we create metadata in many formats, including XMP; capture and assign appropriate metadata from bibliographic data and subject terms; and embed it into images for indexing.

Whether you’re channeling periodic digital publications to your readers, repurposing product or training information, digitizing legal documents, converting print books to eBooks, or preparing your content for multimedia delivery in HTML, Aptara can do the heavy lifting so that you can concentrate on the new purpose for that old content.
