IMPORTANT: Letterpart have moved – after 22 years in Reigate we have now moved 10 miles away to Caterham on the Hill – see below for new address and phone numbers – the old Reigate phone number will still work.
Letterpart Limited was formed in 1991. The company was based in Reigate, Surrey, for 22 years and is now based in Caterham on the Hill, Surrey, and has grown to become a UK leader in automated XML typesetting.
Specialists in high volume and complex publications, both loose-leaf and bound, XML, SGML, Word (including .docx) and RTF formats can all be handled. Where Word files are supplied, Letterpart uses customised transformations to convert to XML for typesetting. This XML can then be round-tripped in order to provide the customer with the data in its original format, if required, after paginating.
Publication types include tax work, law books, journals, technical documentation, educational books, catalogues, dictionaries and directories.
To keep up with demand, which has now passed through the 500,000 pages per year mark, and to provide for expected future levels, the production team utilises powerful, next generation, automated XML batch pagination and composition tools. Coupled with this is a comprehensive set of automation tools developed in-house in a generic form and tailored to customer specific requirements. The resultant capability means all promised deadlines are kept and this enables high throughput, fast delivery and high quality output at very competitive per page costs.
The portfolio of services includes highly automated, UK based, outsourced XML pagination and XML composition functions and an easy to use and completely automated web-based XML Typesetting process for clients’ round the clock and remote self-servicing needs.
In addition, complete software solutions are now on offer for clients wishing to keep their XML processing in-house. In conjunction with SDL (formerly XyEnterprise), Letterpart can offer not only market leading page makeup tools, but complete solutions encompassing component content management and intelligent content delivery solutions.
