Dear Colleagues,

Is it possible to transfer somehow the pdf text in doc *MSWord* application?

Thank you in advance for any suggestions.

PS: the point is I've got a pdf file for translation, and I have an extensive memory for the similar projects in Star Transit. But Star Transit takes among others doc files.

Yes you can Aug 29, 2004

Hello,

There are 2 ways, that I know of, for doing this. If you have Adobe Acrobat, then you can use the Save As command from the file menu and select the rtf option. Or, if you only have Acrobat reader, then you can select the text, copy it, and then paste it in MS Word.

Hope that helps.

Sameh

Abby fine reader is a good option Aug 29, 2004

And there are plenty of postings on this topic (pdf2doc). All are really informative. Not to repeat all that have been said, may I suggest you to search the forum?

Be careful, that the order is conserved Aug 30, 2004

Often some textblocks get mixed up when copying selected text into Word. Finereader is the best, it removes also the carriage returns after each line. Atherwise there is no much use of your TM, because you get only chunks of text which break up in the middle of sentences.
Finereader has an trial version (14 days).

Thanks to all of you!
And to share my experience with all who will come upon the need to convert PDF2Doc - I tried FineReader 6.0 (trial version). Heinrich, you are right - it works perfect!!!
Thanks once again!

ABBYY PDF Transformer 1.0 Sep 19, 2004

A new tool for pdf conversion is "ABBYY PDF Transformer 1.0".
See http://www.abbyy.com/pdftransformer/
It is something like the "ScanSoft PDF Converter 2.0" which I have mentioned above. However, you may need to use both programmes to obtain a good outcome.
