This report describes the work on document translation, electronic publishing and integrating WATERS and Techrep carried out during Summer 93. The documents used for the project were Ph.D. dissertations and, in related efforts, technical reports. Because users often edit documents with different software and then experience problems moving them between different formats (e.g., MS Word to FrameMaker), it would be helpful to have a common format that is independent of the operating system and software on which the document was originally created. In this report, we describe different approaches possible to develop and establish sich a format. Section 2 discusses the access system necessary for a large database. Section 3 talks about the electronic page image approach for storing the document electronically. Section 4 describes the markup approach taken for developing an independent document format. Section 5 describes future work.
