Is there a way of translating .cdr files without owning CorelDraw? Is there a filter available for Trados or Deja Vu to handle such files?



Now I checked the Corel site and apparently there is a fully functional trial version available for free. Now the question still remains: is there a way of extracting text strings into an editable format for a subsequent re-import?

Not that I know Oct 14, 2002

I have been working with CorelDraw since version 2, and I have never found such a tool, hope you\'ll find it!

Download the free trial version of CorelDraw Oct 15, 2002

Open the CDR files with it, export them to JPEG (or any other common graphic format) and use any OCR software available to convert those graphic files to TXT or DOC format.



If you still need help, please contact me privately.

I did it manually Oct 15, 2002

Thank you for your ideas. I downloaded CD yesterday and I did the translation of the text strings manually. I know it is possible to extract the text strings, but I still have not found any solution to reimport them to the same graphic. And all this ideally in an automated process, not 50+ files individually.

Anyway, I did the job by now manually.
