EPub sands for Electronic Publications. It is free and is the open source standard for eBooks, established by the IDPF or the International Digital Publishing Forum. There are several benefits of using ePub. It allows interoperability between various types of software and hardware as far as digital books and publications from various publishers are concerned. The digital books in unencrypted state are designed explicitly for content where the display of the text is customised and optimised depending on the device which the end user is using. In short the text display changes from a laptop to a touch screen smart phone and so on. To enable this, ePub is the standard most publishers stick to. Hence there are a lot of chances that you would need to convert the ePub to PDF format.
A good ePub to PDF converter to start with is easy to use. The user interface should be simple and its operation shouldn’t require any professional Website or skills. It is expected to come free of cost. The better converters also offer a selection of various languages for the user’s convenience. These are mainstream languages in the world, in which the user wants conversion from ePub to PDF. One of the most important factors which the converter should possess is the ability to allow batch conversion, converting several files at the same time. Not only is this quicker, it also allows one to focus on other tasks as much human intervention is not required once it gets going.
There are some good converters which are quite helpful when it comes to allowing the user to even customize the final output or PDF file. Simple things like settings related to font, font size, and character set etc. are parameters which the users would love to experiment with and hence the converter should be able to provide them with that leeway. Supporting multiple options for export like CHM and HLP is another feature which the user should look for in a good structure.
Another aspect which is quite important is that the software shouldn’t tinker with the structure of the original file in ePub format ensuring that the original file is always safe and untarnished. Usually text formats of ANSI text and Unicode text are supported by the ePub to PDF converter. RTF, the Microsoft format and Word format, HTM and HTML, PDF and KNT or KeyNote format are other formats that are usually supported. The bigger this set, the more versatile and useful the ePub to PDF converter is.
