I have a scanned file in PDF format that needs to be translated. Is it possible to use Trados for this and, if so, how do I go about doing that?

Thanks

Open the document in FineReader or another program with the text recognition function, recognize the text, and send it in MSWord. Now you can translate the text, using Trados. When you will finish translation - clean it up in Trados, and using Adobe Acrobat print it in PDF-file again. Hope this will help! Cheers ;^)
