We are a Quark Publishing Systems environment, so although we use InDesign, our core production environment is QuarkXpress. The designs we receive to be published in 100+ versions in 60 different languages are setup in our enterprise publishing system. ID2Q makes the task of building the design in Quark much easier saving us many hours of reconstructing and comparing our finished layout to what was supplied in Indesign. We also use Q2ID when a client [requests] one of our layouts from our publishing system.
