Sifting through the jargon;
Ebook and digital publishing words and what they mean
Weather you're a writer looking to venture into the digital ebook world, or an illustrator who has been asked to illustrate an ebook for someone else - the jargon can sometimes be confusing.
In my years of illustrating I have learned a lot about ebooks, how they are made and what terms to use. I now find myself using these words without much thought - but for those who are new to this language I have compiled a list of commonly used words, and decided to share them here with a short and simple explanation for each one - some of these may be pretty obvious, but you might just learn something new!
Editor - an editor usually reviews the book or script and corrects any errors such as text, spelling, grammar, flow and so on
PDF - a portable document file, it is a very popular way of sending documents and displaying ebooks
