This short video explains the three different types of document workflows available in one2edit:
- Editing a master document: the master InDesign document itself is edited/translated and reviewed. You would use this workflow for collaborative editing and review of the final draft of a master document.
- Editing a version document: copies of the master InDesign document are edited/translated and reviewed. You would use this workflow when creating translated versions of your master or source language document.
- Editing a template based on a master InDesign document: a copy of a posted template document is edited and reviewed. You would use this workflow in a brand management scenario when you’re making corporate templates available for field offices, franchises, stores, etc. to use to create their own marketing collateral.
In all three of these workflows, late stage layout, design, or content changes to the master document are pushed out to the edit/translation jobs in progress, so you’re always working on the latest version of the job in one2edit’s editor.

I’ve received this question several times from people who have heard about one2edit, but don’t really know what it’s for.
Unlike editorial systems from developers like vjoon (K4) and Woodwing (Enterprise), one2edit isn’t an InDesign document construction solution. one2edit is an InDesign document editing, translation, and review solution. one2edit can be an addition at the end of an editorial workflow when your content requires final edits, approvals, or translation and localization for syndication. one2edit is also designed for brand management solutions where corporate templates made in InDesign are made available for field offices, franchises, stores, etc. to insert their own content.
In other words, one2edit begins with a completed or nearly completed InDesign document (that could come from an editorial solution like those from vjoon or WoodWing), and then enables editors, translators and reviewers to work on that document in a WYSIWYG way in a web browser, rather than being required to learn InDesign or InCopy.
one2edit’s robust, RESTful web services APIs enable easy integration with editorial, MAM, DAM, and CMS systems, so that it can be integrated into new or legacy workflow or content management systems. The APIs can also be used to create dynamic document front ends for automated document construction using variable data. Template-based documents can be dynamically generated, and then assigned a workflow for browser-based editing, translation, and review using the one2edit APIs.
Of course, one2edit can also be used as a stand-alone solution for managing the editing, translation, and review of InDesign documents online.
