Have you tried ABBYY FineReader? Feb 9, 2010

Hello from Athens,

have you tried ABBYY FineReader 10 Professional yet? There is a trial version you can download for free, at least to get the job done for now: http://finereader.abbyy.com/trial/

I hope that it works for you.

Best regards,
Irene

I assume you have received a request from a client to translate a web page, and on that web page is an image with text on it. You can't edit the text on an image without specialist tools and a certain amount of skill, so editing the text should be up to the client himself.

What you should deliver is the translation in a way that the client can copy/paste the translation into the image without making a mess of things. The best way IMO to do this, is to create a table in MS Word with two columns, in which the left column contains the source text (that you had typed in manually) and the right column contains the translation.

If you have lots and lots of JPGs with text, hire a typist to type the source text for you.
