Please use a PDF converter Dec 30, 2009

and I beg you, please please use the search function - converting PDF to an editable format is I think the most common topic here on ProZ.

Use ABBY FineReader Ver 8.0 Dec 30, 2009

Use ABBY FineReader Ver 8.0

It provides a very good quality in relation to text recognition and also keeps the layout in a very good way.

More over, the trial version of version 8.0 enables you to scan up to 50 pages. Later versions allows you to scan only 1-3 pages.

Where do I get older versions from? Apr 5, 2010

Hi Sergei,

I have been trying to download the trial of the latest version 10 from the official site without success. It seems they don't want us to try. Where can I get older version from, as the ABBUFinereader site doesn't offer them (and I don't want to download suspicious files)?

Thank you a lot,
Constance

there is a program called Able2doc, and it works very well. Google it. I think it's less expensive than some of the others. You can download a trial version that will do 5 conversions.
