Our business is based on macOS, currently version 10.12 (Sierra).

We have almost 40 high-performance Mac workstations or laptops.

Most staff use office software such as Microsoft Office and Adobe Acrobat Pro.

Our copy-editors use an extensive suite of custom-written Word macros to complement the work of on-screen editing. The full suite of macros capable of detecting and correcting several thousand different problems.

We also use Adobe Creative Cloud (Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Bridge) and, where relevant, specialist software such as Oxygen XML Editor, BBEdit, CSSEdit, MathType and Script Debugger.

If you require us to use Windows-specific software, please bear in mind that Macs are capable of running Windows if necessary, either natively (using Boot Camp) or virtually (using software such as Parallels Desktop).

Our IT resources include:

  • high-quality, high-speed, A3 and A4 colour proofing
  • document scanning in colour
  • three high-capacity file servers, which are backed up each night
  • email, calendar and contacts servers to support group working
  • custom-written apps that support effective publishing workflows
