Woodwing updates Enterprise publishing system

WoodWing Software has released version 9.5 of its multi-channel publishing system Enterprise, which makes it easier to reuse online content in print. Thus a complete online story can be dragged and dropped onto an InDesign template with object styles applied. This means that all the components in the story, such as header, body and captions can be automatically formatted. The title can be re-written in the style of the print publication, the length of the body text can be adjusted to ensure copy fit, and additional article components and high-resolution images can be added as needed. The content of the Web story remains untouched.

Roel-Jan Mouw, CEO of WoodWing Software, explained: “Although online first is widely accepted among magazine and newspaper publishers, print is still the cash cow for many of them.”

Enterprise 9.5 already supports Drupal 8, which is currently available only as a beta version. In addition to PHP 5.4, Enterprise now supports PHP 5.5, and the Smart Connection plug-in now is compatible with the Adobe CC 2014.

There’s also better support for remote workers as articles can be automatically compressed and decompressed during transmission in a fully transparent manner. Files can then be compressed to 10% of their original size.

There’s also improved support for Asian and Arabic languages, including the Indian language Malayalam.





Syndicate content

You can license the articles from Printing and Manufacturing Journal to reproduce in other publications. I generally charge around £150 per article but I’m open to discussing this for each title, particularly for publishers that want to use multiple stories. I can provide high res versions of images for print publications.

I’m used to working with overseas publishers and am registered for VAT with the UK’s HMRC tax authority but obviously won’t charge VAT to companies outside the UK. You can find further details and a licensing form from this page, or just contact me directly here.
