Our business is based on macOS, currently version 10.14 (Mojave).

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

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

We have an extensive suite of custom Word macros to complement the work of on-screen editing. These assist our editors, but do not replace detailed copy-editing. The full suite of macros is capable of detecting and correcting several thousand different problems.

For design, layout and typesetting, we also use Adobe Creative Cloud (Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Bridge).

We are also fully familiar with specialist software such as Oxygen XML Editor, BBEditMathType and Script Debugger.

If you require us to use Windows-specific software, this is not a problem. We use Windows 10 run through Parallels.
