How can a PDF file be opened with SDL Trados Studio 2009 SP3?

Everytime I want to open a PDF file with SDL Trados Studio 2009 SP3 the message "Error when pre-tweaking file: Ein Aufrufziel hat einen Ausnahmefehler verursacht" appears.

What does this error message mean?

SDL Studio can't really do PDF.. Dec 20, 2010

..with some exceptions. I would never trust Studio with PDF-files. This so-called feature is just a marketing gag. There are much better PDF converters around, but even then you'd still have to edit the result BEFORE loading it into Studio, or any other CAT tool, for that matter.

I know of a very good PDF conversion tool, which I might let you know about if you send me a message.

PDF without a text layer Dec 20, 2010

This means you are trying to open a PDF document which is a scanned copy of a hardcopy document; in other words, it is an image. Studio can only handle PDFs with a text layer, i.e. PDF exports from editable formats.

Use an OCR software (e.g. ABBYY Fine Reader) to export the PDF into Word and open the Word export in Studio.
