EPUB and MOBI conversion
Legimi offers EPUB and MOBI conversion service from PDF, INDD and DOC/DOCX file formats. We have a team that is able to convert several hundred standard book titles per week.
Differences between PDF and EPUB
PDF file due to its fixed structure is a perfect format for printing or reading on large displays.
For smaller screens, there are problems with a proper display of its content though.
There is no pagination in EPUB file. Text layout is adjusted to the size of display and changed accordingly to the font size and graphics included.
Therefore, EPUB became an official standard for eBooks.
High quality composition
Prepared by us EPUB files:
- 1 look like a paper book, which makes reading more comfortable,
