Comprehensive project management services deliver on publishers’ needs for greater efficiency and cost control. KGL can provide assistance in defining project scope, designing optimum workflows, initial project planning, or ongoing project management as your needs and internal resource constraints dictate.

Our automated pre-editing services can programmatically “cleaned up” files that will accelerate the delivery and increase the accuracy of your copyediting. This software performs mundane copyediting tasks such as spell-checking, abbreviation and punctuation standardization, tagging, and reference-checking. These files can be used directly for composition or as the starting point for more extensive manual copyediting.
KGL composes on all major platforms including Quark®, InDesign®, 3B2, TeX, and XPP.
KGL can work from existing print materials, raw manuscripts, copyedited files and most printer files to generate composed pages or XML-coded files, by using a combination of automated software tools and manual data-entry. Our double-entry, triple-compare process ensures the optimal level of accuracy at the character level.
KGL has extensive experience with data conversion projects from both paper-based media and electronic files. KGL hundreds of thousands of pages of legacy content annually through either scanning or keying processes to generate both PDF pages and XML coded files.
Publishers today often need to deliver content online or in other mediums in advance of the printed issue. KGL can facilitate this process by coding and delivering your files prior to composition or copyediting. Our technology and workflows are more efficient than many others because we use a combination of automated tools and manual processes to quickly and efficiently deliver your files in the format you need them. KGL supplies XML files to such online vendors as Highwire Press, Ovid, ScienceDirect, Wiley Interscience, and Ingenta.
