DaDataSources makes it possible to link one or more data sources (e.g. Excel, MySQL) to InDesign documents in one2edit™ and import data into any segment of a text or table cell. This means that all process participants work as usual with their Excel spreadsheets or databases and do not have to enter the InDesign world. Data Sources significantly reduces the probability of errors when updating data.
one2edit™ is based on the industry-standard Adobe InDesign® server technology. Unlike many similar products, it does not convert InDesign documents into another format during the editing process. one2edit™ manages the InDesign server remotely, transferring your inputs and changes without any losses.
Thanks to its real WYSIWYG processing, this method makes your tasks more straightforward. On top of this, all InDesign functions can be used and retained, including anchored objects, inline graphics and textbox chains that cover several pages. This is particularly valuable for complex layouts or very large documents.
You can check your documents out of the process at any time and edit them in the desktop version of InDesign because one2edit™ works without converting InDesign formats. This means your agency can make changes to the layout and then check the document in again – without loss and without risks.
one2edit™ follows a consistent, best-of-breed approach that gives you the power to connect one2edit™ with as many other systems as necessary. Choose the best solution, continue using your existing systems and achieve end-to-end processes along the entire content management value chain – from supply through to distribution.
Alongside these two programming interfaces, you can also access a variety of standard interfaces for a seamless and deep integration with leading systems.
Using our File Client creates a seamless and user-friendly connection with the desktop workspaces of creative teams. This enables them to open, edit and save InDesign files with a simple double-click, just like they can on a local hard drive – without any need for uploading or downloading.
Standard Single-Sign-On (SSO) processes are available to support the integration of portal solutions like brand management portals, marketing platforms or intranet channels. Simply connect your company directory via LDAP. one2edit™ takes on your groups, roles and user rights – and then allocates the specific attributes of one2edit™ that are necessary for efficient collaboration, even in complex organizational structures.
one2edit™ offers an integrated translation memory that can support the localization of media by performing pre-translations automatically. It’s also possible to create a smooth connection between the translation memory and existing translation systems like SDL|Trados, MemoQ or Across. You have the freedom to define workflows that include using machine translation through Google or Microsoft Services – and you can also involve human translators in the process.
The possibilities for creating efficient and smooth processes for localization using one2edit™ are almost unlimited. You can set your own rules for segmentation or use preconfigured standards for common systems. And you can decide whether the integrated spelling and grammar correction system uses an existing dictionary or works with your own dictionary.
The WYSIWYG preview gives you the right context for translations while also showing whether the translated text fits into the layout. If space gets tight, one2edit™ offers you alternatives that can help save room – from font sizes through to character and line spacing, and many others.
With one2edit™, you can start the localization process before the document design has been finalized. Design developments and changes to the master document can be integrated into all language versions simply and easily. The dynamic connection between the master layout and the versions for different countries or languages makes it possible to save a significant amount of time compared to conventional approaches.
The integrated one2edit™ workflow engine can be used to create editing, feedback and approval processes quickly and simply using the drag and drop function. There’s no limit to the number of process steps or participants involved. You can set up automatic notifications to be sent when a process step is completed, activate interactions with other systems via web-services and follow the progress in the project overview.
User rights can be based on roles and job assignments – and can be adapted for each individual project. External and internal users worldwide are able to work together through their browser. Each user has a personalized list of tasks, while the project manager can follow all activities in the project overview. This makes localization and adaptation of communications materials an efficient and transparent process.
There’s no need to create complicated workflows or business process notations, and no need for programming skills or training activities. Our workflow engine is built to meet real-world needs and makes it possible to create processes quickly – and adapt them just as fast if necessary. Workflows enable you to automate processes by offering a wide range of export functions and possibilities to communicate with other systems. You can also save workflows and reuse them as templates. This gives you the power to standardize your processes using the one2edit™ workflow engine without having to give up your agility.
All changes to a document are logged by one2edit™. This means they can be accessed through the document history and changes can be reversed if necessary.
The comprehensive range of filter options and integrated full-text search function make it possible to find what you’re looking for quickly. With just one double-click, one2edit™ shows you the exact position within the WYSIWYG editor.
The history can be exported and archived outside of one2edit™.
