A few days ago I have reviewed the Firefox add-on GrabMyBooks which can be used to turn multiple web pages into an ePub ebook. Today I'm reviewing the free service 2ePub which is an online converter. The free service can turn several document formats into the ePub format, and several other output formats. All you need to do is to upload your documents to the web service, select the desired output format and wait until the conversion has been completed.
Lets take a look at the supported input and output formats first:
Here is how it works. You visit the service's website and click the browse button on it to load a maximum of five supported documents to the conversion queue. The documents can have a total file size of 25 Megabytes. A click on Upload files uploads the documents to the service.
They are then shown under step 2 of the process. Here it is possible to change the title and author as well as the encoding of each individual document. You can keep the automatic settings as well to speed up the process.
The conversion options are displayed in the second step as well. It is possible to convert the uploaded documents to epub or one of the other supported output formats.
The converted documents are offered for download in the third and final step of the process. You can right-click and save documents individually or all documents at once in zip format.
You can return to step 2 to convert the uploaded documents to an additional document format.
2ePub is a handy online service to convert one or multiple documents into popular ebook formats such as pub, mobi or lit. The service is free to use and requires no registration.
