Below is an extract of a file. Would you know which file type it is, what exactly needs to be translated? What software would you use for this? Thank you.

The answer is in the text you copied: this is a standard help file with footnotes.
The tool to be used depends on the format of the file, Word or TagEditor are usually fine. What are you client's requirements? What did you agree?

If you are not familiar with this format, you should find detailed explanations of the different footnotes in Google, for example here: http://mc-computing.com/languages/delphi/ComponentHelp.html
