    Do you already have an epub file that won’t load?

    We offer an epub cleansing service, guaranteed to remove all epub validation errors.

    When you try to submit an epub file to Google or Kobo, it may show that there are validation errors with your epub file, and in some cases the platform will refuse to publish your ebook as a result.

    Validation errors are common in epub files that have been automatically generated, in both fixed layout and free flow epub files. Some of the examples of the epubcheck errors that might appear include:

    • Error while parsing file: attribute "link" not allowed here; expected attribute "class", "dir", "ID", "lang", "style", "title" or "xml:lang"

    • Error while parsing file: element "img" missing required attribute "alt"

    • Filename contains spaces, therefore URI escaping is necessary. Consider removing spaces from the filename.

    • Error while parsing file: identical playOrder values for navPoint/navTarget/pageTarget that do not refer to same target

    We can fix all of these and much more.

    What we offer is a cost-effective service that converts the digital files you use for creating paper editions into high quality eBook files.

    Each conversion is carried out for a fixed price based on a tariff that takes into account...

    • The number of pages

    • The complexity - things like tables, illustrations and complicated page layouts add to the

    • The state of the files submitted - sometimes there are technical faults in the files that need more manual intervention

    Trouble free files

    The eBook files we create for you will work properly and look right on all the main eBook devices and APPs.

    Although you may be able to convert your own files yourself using free software available on the internet the files produced often have glitches in them which either prevent them from uploading properly or result in odd display layouts. We have specialist in-house tools and techniques for fixing these problems and have 100% success rate. So, if you have problems with file conversions do get in touch.

    Making an eBook edition of a paper book normally generates more sales

    Although, when asked, most readers say they prefer to read paper books to reading eBooks, many say that when they are on the move they tend to read eBooks. That may explain why industry surveys indicate that 40% of readers buying eBooks also bought the paper edition.

    eBook file basics

    The most widely adopted format for eBook files is ePub which is the international standard. ePub files can be read using FREE APPs on PCs, Macs, iOS and Android. Most specialist eBook reader devices are designed to work with ePub files. ePub files can also be loaded onto KDP for use on Amazon's proprietary Kindle devices. ePub files are normally produced from files already created for the production of paper editions, with Adobe Acrobat (pdf) files being a very popular source.

    A common misunderstanding

    Ebooks are not just like electronic copies of paper books as you would get from a scanner. Unlike printed books which have fixed dimensions and a sequence of pages, ebooks have a variable format and don't actually have pages in the conventional sense. They are akin to websites where what you see on the screen depends on a number of factors especially the kind of device and software you are using. This provides great flexibility for the reader. For example, a person with poor eyesight can switch to a large font size. For this reason it is unwise to attempt to force a fixed format on an ebook's contents with the exception of images which need to preserve their own proportions.

    Written a book and need it converted to an ebook?

    We can convert your book (from a MS Word or PDF document) to an epub file and ensure the file is free from errors that might prevent it from being published on places like Google Play and Kobo library. Most platforms (e.g. Amazon, Kobo, Nook etc) require an epub file for upload. If you need any other file format please contact us and we can discuss this with you.

    If you are a publisher or printer requiring regular ebook conversions we can offer you a reliable and cost effective service based on an an agreed and straightforward tariff.
