LaTeX is one of the most powerful typesetting platforms for publishers of mathematics, economics, and other content requiring the presentation of equations. But, if you’re a publisher of that type of content, let’s just admit something else about LaTeX – it’s infuriatingly complex and can make any project bloat in schedule and cost.
Through our work in the journal and academic publishing markets over the years, we have handled hundreds of books and thousands of articles with LaTeX content. Every time a new ‘easy button’ for LaTeX appeared in the market, we too were optimistic that it would get easier to work with TeX content. But, since authors all like their own versions, plug-in’s, macros, and templates, most ‘easy buttons’ for LaTeX break the second you pour any content through them.
Instead of trying to bypass the problem, we invested. In our people. Meet US employee-owned Westchester’s offshore management team. Dilip, Sara, and Kannan scoured the industry to find the best of the best in LaTeX typesetting and consulting and hired them, and asked them to train other members of our staff. Through hiring and training over the years, Westchester has assembled an A-Team of LaTeX operators and engineers, who help The MIT Press, Princeton University Press, Johns Hopkins University Press, Mary Ann Liebert, and other book and journal publishers with their complex LaTeX content. We have helped Princeton and Johns Hopkins develop LaTeX templates for their authors to use, for Princeton and MIT we provide LaTeX consulting for authors, and we ensure that all of these books with critical math content are published quickly, affordably, and without issue.
