There is no way to import PDF in Transit, Trados, DejaVu and so on.

Does anyone know a way to convert a PDF file to xml and back?

The subject of PDF files has been discussed in more threads than there are gray hairs in my beard. Enlightenment is just a few clicks away using the Forums search function!

I found a good converter that keeps images and pages

Convert Doc -> http://www.softinterface.com/Convert-Doc/Convert-Doc.htm

I will try Solid Converter and return with feedback

Feedback Sep 8, 2008

Solid Converter and Convert Doc seem to do the job, but both have small issues with pages and tables.
I also tried Adobe Acrobat Professional 8, but it seems like these two programs (Solid Converter and Convert Doc) work better. The word document exported from Acrobat looks very bad.
I heard Abby Finereader would do a good job. Has anyone tried it?

Thank you for your help and good luck in the future!

I tried Abby Finereader.
Is good for text but when you have images and tables I don't recommend it.

With tables and images, it is a bad idea to let FineReader recognise them automatically. However, if you tell the program what areas are images and tables (i.e., you define them manually), the quality of output is much improved.
