Welcome to TeXNaT. We can help you with typesetting of technical and scientific texts. Other types of texts can also be done. Our tool is the typesetting program TEX and its variants LaTEX and XeLaTEX. (If you do not know anything about these have a look at TUG TeX Users Group.) We also give advice on typesetting of formulas (mathematical or other), tables, how to use pictures …; if you only need a small number of formulas these can be delivered as pictures which can be included in other documents.

LaTeX can be used to produce almost all kinds of documents. It is specially suited for documents containing mathematical formulas, tables and diagrams or other types of scientific text. It has become a lingua franca for publishing mathematics. Almost all publishers of mathematical books or journals accept manuscripts in some TeX-format (mainly LaTeX).

One of my pet-projects is to use LaTeX to make print-ready originals for books in other fields than natural science. You will find several examples of such books below, all of which were printed at Wikströms Tryckeri AB in Uppsala. Some of these were typeset from Word manuscripts (text extracted by a variety of tools, antiword, catdoc or Open Office), the preparation of the text done in the excellent editor Vim/gVim, and with pictures in a variety of formats (tiff, jpeg, …). Others were scanned to textfiles with the help of optical character recognition, and then typeset with LaTeX or XeLaTeX. A lot of pictures were also scanned for these books. We strongly recommend the program Vuescan for all scanning and OCR (see Vuescan).

We have typseset several books. Vi i Vänge – en hembygdsbok, a book on Hörnsjöfors bruk och Västerfärnebo, Brukskamrerns Wirsbo and for prof Teddy Brunius Ars Longa and Gåtor och Behag. I have also typeset a book with more mathematical content, Principles of Deductive Theoretical Physics by Tomas Blomberg, published by Lambert Academic Publishing. Excerpts from these (in Swedish where appropiate) can be seen among the examples.

Examples

Here are some examples of documents and books made with the help of various versions of LaTeX. From December 2011 to December 2013 I also assisted with the production of SMS bulletinen the newsletter given out by the Swedish Mathematical Society. After that time I help with the LaTeX-templates I made for the newsletter, which is only published on the web (large pdf-files).

Desktop Publishing

We can also help with "ordinary desktop publishing" i.e. where we do not use LaTeX. For this we use only open source programs. Preparation of pictures is done with gimp and inkscape, texts are prepared in Libre Office (or in a texteditor, like vim). Everything is then assembled with the help of the marvellous program Scribus scribus. (Some post-processing of the pdf-files can be done with ghostscript.) Here you can see some examples of publications we have prepared for the Uppsala Senior University
