Looking for a free text converter? Look no more, upload your DocBook files and convert them to InDesign ICML files. Yes, it’s that easy.
Converting from DocBook
DocBook is a really good file format for writing technical books, that’s based on XML. It’s an open standard and widely used for open-source projects. It captures the logical structure of the content and can be published to many formats. Write the content in DocBook without thinking about the visual representation. Normally this is the part where I say something bad about the file format, but to be honest, I really like DocBook. Oh, just one thing: It’s very old. But that shouldn’t stop you from using the nice file format. Convert all your files to DocBook and convert them from DocBook to any other format. Just upload your file and we’ll see what we can do.
The files end with
.dbk by default.
Converting to InDesign ICML
An ICML file contains Adobe InCopy stories. This is the file format you want to use to collaborate with a designer that uses Adobe Indesign. I have no idea why you should use this file format instead. There are so many free, open, documented, better text formats out there. An Adobe file format would be the least I’d use to store relevant information. But I don’t want to stop you. If you are here to convert a few files online, you have probably a reason already. At least it’s free to convert the files here. So good luck with your project! Keep up the good work!The files end with
