I am looking at an e-book project for a book that has been translated into Arabic.
We need the manuscript to be built into an e-book including an index (a list of specific terms and a series of references to chapter number and paragraph number within that chapter indicating where each of the index terms appears in the manuscript).
I lack experience in the Arabic e-book market; while the client is interested in having the e-book created in InDesign, I want to know what e-book platform is most popular for Arabic readers.
We would by far prefer to produce an e-book in which the pages turn naturally for Arabic readers, not right to left as an English language e-book might. Please recommend technical solution that provides this benefit, if you know of any.
Manuscript is roughly 150 pages; index of terms has about 130 terms.
I do not have this project under contract yet; am seeking information and bids at this time which I will use to try to secure this project.
Looking for native Arabic speaking freelancers only.
