In partnership with editors, we request equations to be created using Microsoft Equation Editor or MathType . Typesetting India Group can then automatically format all equations and export them to InDesign using our custom-built software (InDesign Script).
From Microsoft Word we perform the following steps:

Automatically apply formatting to all equations. Formatting defines equation preferences, i.e. fonts, size and spacing.
Automatically export all equations to the required format.
Custom-built software is used to import equations and align them into the text flow.
