Preparing Your Manuscript


Please follow the instructions listed below in order to facilitate a quick, smooth and error-free production of your book.

  • Prepare your manuscript on the same system—both hardware and software—from start to finish. We accept text files in Microsoft Word format. Please also submit a Pdf version of the entire text.
  • Use as little formatting as necessary. The plainer the printout, the easier it will be to edit and design your book.
  • Use one font throughout. The entire manuscript will need to be converted into the Unicode font Chris SIL, which is available free of charge from the internet ( By converting the manuscript into this font yourself, you can avoid later problems with the conversion of diacritical marks.
  • Please follow the instructions in our style sheet.
