Victory developed the Grade 4 California, Texas, and National editions for the SE, TE, and ancillaries, and translated two grade levels, all in 14 months. When other developers missed deadlines, Victory took on additional English editorial development work for grades 5 and 6.
In the translation project, the Bilingual Teacher Edition required intensive coordination among the English and Spanish Editorial, Design, and Production teams. For example, Victory developed manuscript templates to minimize copy-fit issues, and editors worked in InCopy after writer’s manuscript was poured.
Production placed overflow answers at the bottom of the spread, or at the end of the unit. Production and design created and tracked hundreds of pieces of art beyond what would usually be in a Teacher Edition.
