Hi all,

I wonder if it's possible to convert a target Word file back to PDF after translation in Trados Studio 2015? And if so, how?

If you have Office 2007 SP2 or later you can open any Word document in MS Word and Save as a PDF file.

Use any PDF writer Jul 3, 2015

The fact of its being translated in Trados or not is immaterial (as long as it has been 'cleaned', of course!)

If you don't have Word 2007, all you need do is to use a PDF writer program: this will behave like a printer, so you just 'print' your word document to it, and hey presto! you have a PDF file.

You can buy Acrobat or one of the other paid programs, but for occasional use, I find the free version of Primo PDF from Nitro is very user-friendly and effective.

Hi again,

Thanks for your answers. My question was actually if there exist such a functionality in Trados Studio 2015 (without Save as PDF in MS Word as suggested)

Please correct me if I am wrong but I don't think such a feature is available in any Trados version. If you want you can use Solid Converter from http://www.soliddocuments.com/ because that is the PDF SDK/engine Trados uses under the hood.

No. Studio converts the PDF to Word under the hood with SolidDocument (as Linh says) and so the target file format is also Word.
SolidDocument and other OCR tools would also produce a Word file, not a PDF.

You may be interested to read more about the new scanned PDF capabilities of Studio 2015 in a blog post I wrote this morning:
