Content Conversion

It is essential to transform your content into multiple reusable and responsive formats and make it more discoverable and easy for you to repurpose. However, while doing so, you need to maintain the integrity of data in terms of style and formatting, or you risk affecting the readability of your content. Transforma uses[leverage is too much used!] natural language processing (NLP) to enhance the conversion process and deliver high-quality, structured content in a wide range of output formats such as ePub, ePub2, ePub3, Mobi, HTML5, XML, and SGML.

Whether your content originated from a hard copy or a soft copy source, we efficiently digitize and transform large volumes in a cost-effective manner.
