This is the first time I see it happen, I have opened an Adobe PDF document and I have been working for some hours, but I do not know what order is SDL Trados translating the page because when I try to open it in Word, It dose not shows up what I am doing because it seams that Trados is taking all titles form different pages.
I do not know what is happening? It seems to me that I am not getting anywhere! and that I am losing my time. Help me please!

Thanks in advance for you

Studio is not a good tool to translate pdf files Nov 14, 2011

At the moment it probably translates all footers and headers so nothing terrible is happening. Still the formatting will be destroyed. It would make more sense to first recreate the file in Words and only then translate it in Studio.

Best Regards

PDF or Word Nov 14, 2011

Studio cannot translate within a PDF. If you open a PDF for translation in Studio, it will first be converted into a Word file.
After you are done with the translation and save in "original" format, the result will consequently be a Word document, not a PDF.

You may, however, after Studio has converted the PDF into the Word format, first check and possibly amend the Word file, before you go on.
