I'm trying to best convert my book to an e-reader format, initially for Kindle, but I really want something that will display on any e-reader.
My book includes a mix of both English and Korean and many structured tables of data. It is something like a reference book.
Currently, my book looks perfect in print form, and really good in PDF format. And that's as far as it goes. The Kindle version is pretty awful.
For starters, the tables don't display well on smaller screens. And the Korean doesn't even show up on some Apple products.
While I've been told to make the tables into images, if I do that they won't be searchable...not optimal...
The other issue is that Amazon's lousy conversion program that I used didn't make the TOC or index hyperlinked, and of course the page numbers have no usefulness in the e-book version.
- What format works with all e-book readers, if any?
- What should I do about the tables?
- How about the Korean characters?
- How can I put hyperlinks in? Does this require turning the whole thing into some kind webpage with HTML, or what?
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
In fact, I have contact several services and they all turned down this job....not a promising result~
