Single source publishing, also known as single sourcing, allows the same content to be used in different documents (deliverables) or in various formats. The labour-intensive and expensive work of editing need only be carried out once, on one document. Further transformations are carried out mechanistically, by automated tools. You may also add new output formats in the future, as your organization's needs change.
Single source publishing offers benefits in at least three areas. Their relative emphasis depends on the application and the type of information being communicated, and will influence the choice of tools used:
- Technical publishing formats
- Content assembly, including translation and localization
- Different contexts of use

Famous quotes containing the words publishing, single and/or source:
“While you continue to grow fatter and richer publishing your nauseating confectionery, I shall become a mole, digging here, rooting there, stirring up the whole rotten mess where life is hard, raw and ugly.”
—Norman Reilly Raine (18951971)
“Think of all the really successful men and women you know. Do you know a single one who didnt learn very young the trick of calling attention to himself in the right quarters?”
—Storm Jameson (18911986)
“Life has no other discipline to impose, if we would but realize it, than to accept life unquestioningly. Everything we shut our eyes to, everything we run away from, everything we deny, denigrate or despise, serves to defeat us in the end. What seems nasty, painful, evil, can become a source of beauty, joy and strength, if faced with an open mind. Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision to recognize it as such.”
—Henry Miller (18911980)
