10 April 2008 – Anyone can now make professional digital publications - such as e-Books and e-Zines - from a PDF in seconds with YUDU, the UK’s leading provider of online publications. The online YUDU Freedom service, available from, is completely free to use and converts your PDF into a Flash publication which is simple to upload to a website or blog, distribute via email or save to a digital storage device. YUDU publications are also hosted for free.

YUDU Freedom brings digital reading to the world and gives people the chance to publish online at no cost, to a standard that was previously unattainable. Publishers also have the comfort of knowing that their work will be read in a professional page-turning format with all the benefits of a website, including live links.

Digital publications can be read from page to page or skipped through backwards and forwards by selecting the page number or particular section of interest. Readers can also use a search tool to find particular keywords, add their own bookmarks and even write notes.

Professional individuals can become online publishers and can choose to create digital magazines - newspapers or e-Books, for example - with YUDU Freedom and then sit back and watch readers browse the work, or create links for people to access the publication from websites or blogs.

Improve search rankings

YUDU Media makes getting content on to the internet extremely simple and fast; and because YUDU Freedom is completely free, it is accessible to everybody. Once online, the content can then be posted to bookmarking sites such as DIGG, Newsvine and, and shared with anyone in the online community, increasing its exposure.

Documents created with YUDU Freedom are also search engine accessible, helping individual publishers get their work noticed online. Links to external websites can also be included so that it is possible to direct traffic to a blog or website straight from the publication.

YUDU Freedom gives people the freedom to read anything somebody else wants to publish, but YUDU asks that publishers stick to their three simple rules: the content does not breach the copyright of others; is not offensive; and is not adult in nature.

Green initiative with Carbon Clear

YUDU Media also works with Carbon Clear to ensure all of its products are zero carbon rated and make as little impact on the world’s ecosystem as possible.

Richard Stephenson, Chairman, YUDU Media, comments, “YUDU Media also offers a paid-for service for publishers and other professionals, but is launching Freedom to allow everyone to publish and access content online.

“YUDU Freedom can unlock a creative talent or bring learning, knowledge and information to people with limited access to newspapers, magazines and books.”
