XML Development
We play a pivotal role in helping organizations adapt to XML development – SDM Technologies clients are increasingly embracing XML authoring as it is the base for enhancing the publishing process and improve quality with increased flexibility and at lower costs.
Technology gurus at SDM term XML content "intelligent content" as XML contains added information embedded within it — known as "metadata" — enabling applications routinely manipulate the XML.
Team SDM routinely develops media rich XML of, unstructured paper, microfilm or scanned documents to reliable XML files. SDM’s experienced DTD and schema production teams develop, refine and document DTD/Schema into dynamic products. The team works with a number of third-party encoding standards such as TEI, DocBooks, NLM, DTBook, together with a number of proprietary content management tools to create XML databases.
SDM capabilities extend to converting documents from almost all known digital formats as well as hard copy documents to XML including the following:
  • HTML to XML
  • TXT to XML
  • WORD to XML
  • SGML to XML
  • PDF to XML
  • RTF to XML
  • EXCEL to XML
  • CSV to XML
  • DTD Creation and Development
  • XSLT, CSS Creation and Development
  • Printed/Hardcopies to XML
  • Electronic copies to XML
  • TIFF to XML
  • QuarkExpress to XML
  • InDesign to XML
  • FrameMaker to XML
XML development easily overcomes the inefficiencies of unstructured authoring, XML authoring offers several crucial capabilities and efficiently meets today’s publishing requirements of creating more information, with higher quality, at a lower cost aimed at more media types.
