Our in-house quality assurance team will look after your eBook conversion from beginning to end. We promise to provide our clients with high quality and retailer approved titles that meet all international eBook standards.

At EMRE Publishing, we work to exceptionally high standards to meet our customer’s expectations of quality and accuracy. We aim to create clean and easily editable ebook files that will display correctly and function on all devices.We will never use an automated or robotic conversion process which can destroy the look and layout of your book and introduce hyphenation, spacing and paragraph level errors. We ensure the text accuracy at each stage of the conversion process from text extraction through proofreading and code reviews to final QA tests.
