maybe, if you would copy all the text manually Feb 5, 2003

But why would you want to do that? You have Powerpoint listed under the software you use. If you copy the text to Word, you would loose all the formatting and have a lot of extra work. Powerpoint is not much more diffcult to use than Word.

This makes no sense Feb 5, 2003

As you would need to copy manually every text box from PPT to Word.

And if you want to translate PPT with a CAT-tool, there are enough solutions, which work directly with Power Poit.

Trados has a module for PowerPoint, as far as I know Wordfast can handle PPT, and I´m quite sure Deja VU can do this too.

It is possible to export ppt files to Word Feb 5, 2003

with the option \"File\", \"send to\", \"Microsoft Word\". You can then choose which layout you want in Word.



Good luck,



Marco

via PDF Feb 5, 2003

Hello,



a poor solution is to create a PDF file and than take the text from the pdf file.

Read-only? Feb 5, 2003

Hi,



if you mean you may only read the text, I am afraid there\'s no way to work with that file without the password. Sorry, perhaps a silly question, but are you sure you can only \"read\" it??



(BTW, I wonder why you do not want to use a CAT, as SDLX, TransSuite, Trados, DV, etc. make your job so much easier and faster: you don\'t have to use the time-consuming clicking onto all text boxes AND they offer a precise word count!)

If you only have Power Point reader Feb 5, 2003

Then you will only be able to READ the file, but not to save it.

The only way then is to copy the whole text manually - this should be possible.

Opening a PPT file in other application will surely be possible, as they will have import filters, but you will loose a lot of formating.



The best solution you can choose is to buy a Small Business Edition of MS Office - it includes Power POint and is not that expensive. You can save money, if you choose a System Builder version - it is a full version, however without MS support.

I suffered recently from using this option - certain text boxes from the PPT file are not exported in the Word file (don\'t know why).

just an idea Feb 5, 2003

I believe it is possible to save it as HTML. Then you could either use a text editor or just paste it into a word document. At the risk of being annoying using a CAT tool would be simpler and less aggravating in my opinio. Especially if the cleint expects to get it back as a .ppt file.

And what about OCR software? Feb 6, 2003

It would allow you to extract the text out of the ppt file. I am not very sure, but I think that PaperPort is able to do it.

Send the files to a colleague for conversion Feb 6, 2003

If it´s not too many files, just send them to a colleague for conversion. With Trados I (for example) could convert them to rtf format, but I could try also the \"send to Word\" option.

PowerPoint to Word Feb 6, 2003

Hi,



Try \"view\" > \"overview\" > \"edit\" > \"select all\" > \"edit\" > \"copy\", then switch to Word and paste the text into a new file.



(Hope I get the wording right, I use a Dutch version of PowerPoint)



Good luck!
