What we Offer


"Datapage has provided typesetting services since 1986. We have been to the forefront of technological developments in the industry, including XML-driven workflows."

We have produced STM journals, legal documentation, trade publications and books that encompass a wide range of subject areas (social science, mathematical, educational, etc).

We work hand-in-hand with clients to select the most appropriate application, based on suitability, cost and repurposing requirements. We can accept a range of source material from hardcopy to edited electronic files.


Typesetting Applications used include:

1. Arbortext 3B2 (formerly Advent)

This is the primary system used for our journal output. Its strengths lie in its ability to produce complex tabular and mathematical XML and to render auto-page output that requires minimal intervention from the user. 3B2 is highly stable and flexible and very appropriate for high-end, high-volume page output from XML. Our customisations have dramatically reduced production times

2. QuarkXPress

Since its release in 1987, QuarkXPress has been a favourite for heavily designed material. It brings a large degree of colour control to the desktop computer. It is considered by many to be a leader in desktop publishing applications.


3. FrameMaker

FrameMaker allows us to produce high volumes of social science, arts and humanities books through its very user-friendly environment and direct compatibility with word processing and image formats. The XML compatibility now available in FrameMaker allows the product to extend its range.

4. Adobe Indesign

InDesign was positioned as a higher-end alternative and successor to Adobe's own PageMaker. It enables multi-format publishing, including print-to-web workflows, by exporting InDesign content as XHTML.
