Xeditor allows for outstanding content quality with maximum reusability



A large number of project participants such as authors, editors, and proofreaders work on editorial publications. Documents and manuscripts are usually created with different word processing programs and exchanged by email. The newer versions of these documents are often organized in confusing folder structures, which makes the review process time-consuming and any further processing is inefficient and error-prone.

The digital age is driving a world of change for content usage, and provides significant opportunities to create more flexible offers.


Xeditor helps you pass documents and manuscripts on to other authors, editors, and proofreaders without any loss of quality or control. These can be edited from anywhere and by several people simultaneously. Teamwork is thus made easy and the review process is greatly simplified. All content is organized in XML format and standardized company-wide. This means that content can be published in any format (print, Epub, web, app, etc.) in a highly economical, fast, and error-free manner. Costly conversion processes throughout production are eliminated. Xeditor supports individual schemes (XSD, DTD) as well as standards such as JATS, TEI and DocBook. It can be easily integrated into existing systems such as CMS.

The information model provides a collection structure for the modular collection of information. It is largely implementation-independent to enable easy integration into content management systems (CMS).


DocBook is a document format that is defined in a document type definition (DTD) available for SGML and XML.
