I have some articles (more than 200 pages) in plain text. It needs to be converted to an given PDF markup. I got some Photoshop files for the headers for every page and a list of requirements for the different elements.

Which program would you use? And what would be your workflow?

How much customization are you looking for?

Ballpark guess would be LaTeX, unless you want to do actual transformations there is no need to pull out a general purpose language.

@user1386906 There is also to help you with it ! :) – Zenon Oct 11 '12 at 0:01

I don't think you would need a workflow.

There is already a very reliable tool to assist you with this task. Just look at this amazing ABCpdf tool. We have used it in three projects so far, and have no complains.
