What level(s) of navigation are possible?

The following levels of navigation are possible in a NIMAS file:

  • Chapter
  • Sub-section
  • Page
  • Paragraph

Normally, we do no markup at the paragraph level. DTB Player automatically reads NIMAS files paragraph-wise/ scentence-wise.

How will you deliver the NIMAS Fileset?

We can agree upon on one of these distribution mechanisms:

  • Password-protected web site
  • FTP or another similar protocol
  • Google Drive

Normally, we upload directly to NIMAC Portal based on the access provided to us by a publisher. We undertake any modifications required in the submitted files till a certification has been awarded by NIMAC.

How do you convert our source files to NIMAS?

In case you missed it, you can see the process here. To summarise:

  • Source files are delivered to us through FTP / Hightail / Google Drive
  • Our Production Team reviews and revert if any further details are required
  • Note: Print ISBN is used for the NIMAS Filesets while submitting to the NIMAC; in case if the publication has an ISSN, unique ISBNs are requested from the publisher
  • NIMAS Filesets are validated using the NIMAC Validation Wizard
  • NIMAS Filsets are uploaded to the NIMAC portal
  • Follow-up at the NIMAC Portal for status, and in case any gaps are discovered, we update and upload the fresh fileset to the NIMAC portal
  • NIMAC approves and certifies the title
