I wonder what software is available for conversion of pdfs to editable format for translation. And how expensive this software would be.
Thanks!

No adobe Apr 21, 2008

What I mean is scanning software like Abbyy Finereader or other ocr-programs and cheap viewer-editing software for pdf.

I need to figure out what would be the real costs of switching to Apple in additions to the more expensive hardware.

why not free Wf's PlusTools? Apr 21, 2008

As you know already, it is an unrealistic attempt to try to reconstruct a pdf file backwards. In case you use Ms Word on Mac, then you might install a free companion of Wordfast: PlusTools, and convert quite nicely a pdf file into a good doc, rtf, even formatted from the point of font calibration, no images.

Use what you alredy have May 16, 2008

Open Windows in the Mac as a application more, that's all.

I use VMware. All my Windows applications and Dics (if needed) are running at the same time with Mac OSX Leopard.

It run better and faster!
For example, I hear music in Mac and use Dragon NS at the same time in "Windows" NO problem.

Paste into Word Jun 9, 2008

Hi,

I regularly receive double-column pdfs and I simply select, copy and paste into Word. Then it's just a matter of removing end-of-lines but that can be done easily.

Once in a while, the pdf has been coded in such a way that this method doesn't work and I have to copy and paste paragraph by paragraph (but remember those are two-column documents.

Hope this helps.

Marie-Andree
