Articho is a complete solution for publishing. It is aimed at those involved in editorial preparation (publishers, proofreaders, copy writers, etc.) and those in charge of producing printed and/or digital formats of publications (typesetters, ebook producers, XML producers, etc.).
Articho is transparent and can be easily customized to comply with your style guides. Articho is constantly evolving with updated corrections increasingly reflecting the specifics of your publications. All articho controls can be easily consulted and modified.
Articho consolidates and optimizes Word documents before they are imported into a layout software. Articho thus ensures simplicity and security, and guarantees significant time savings throughout the composition and production of print and digital outputs.
Cleaning. Removal of unwanted characters from text, notes and tables in order to produce a clean formatted document requiring no manual corrections.
Consolidation. Convert inappropriate enrichments into secure formats.
Non-breaking spaces. Automated and complete placement of non-breaking spaces avoids inappropriate line breaks.
Deletion of parasitic information. Comments, revision marks, hypertext links, etc., are deleted.
Optimization of style sheets. The removal of unused styles simplifies the interpretation of the document for typesetting by limiting the styles imported to just those needing to be formatted.
Conversion of enrichments into character styles. The application of a character style sheet makes it possible to remove undesirable replacements in one click, in order to preserve only the relevant formats. You can also be sure of not losing your enrichments when importing the Word document into InDesign or another package.
Automatic composition of tables. Tables are set to the text width of the template and columns are balanced. All that remains is to apply the painting and cell styles to the typesetter.

Articho is compatible with Microsoft Word 2010 for Windows and later versions. Compatibility with Word for MacOS is not guaranteed.
However, if you own a Mac and don’t have access to a PC, you can simply install a Windows system on your Mac using Bootcamp, the partition software provided for free by Apple.
If you have an Office 365 license, this allows Microsoft Word to be installed on multiple computers, Mac and PC. You will therefore not have to acquire a new Microsoft Word license for Windows.
Once Bootcamp and Windows are installed on your Mac, you can boot either on the Mac OS partition or on the Windows partition, in order to prepare your documents precisely using articho. You now have two computers in one!
For more information, see Bootcamp installation on Apple’s website.
Digital publishing is primarily a matter of structuring. The various publication formats (ePub, mobi or others) are structured according to an XML architecture. Articho facilitates the production of this types of format by ensuring reliable and precise structuring of documents, and by suppressing unwanted information.
The use of articho on a network allows a homogeneous preparation of documents within a team, guaranteeing the consistency of your publications and the smooth running of your production processes.
