Have you ever received a scanned PDF that was upside down and then were expected to translate it using a CAT tool?

I just wanted to share a free online PDF rotater to correct this problem, at http://www.rotatepdf.net . It's free, although the author in Paris requests a donation to help pay server costs.

Made my life easier today...

No need Oct 5, 2012

There is no need to download anything. Adobe reader has a feature under "View" that allows one to turn a .pdf image clockwise or counterclockwise.

Only for viewing Oct 5, 2012

Yes, but that's only for viewing, it doesn't modify the source file. When you import it into another program such as PDF Transformer, Infix, Studio it's still in the original orientation.

OK Oct 5, 2012

I was not aware of the rest of that. Myself, I do no more than view the things anyway, and translate directly from that!

PDF-Xchange Oct 6, 2012

I use this application for all work with pdf. It's free and allows me to rotate the text and save a copy of the changed file.
