Hello,

I have a couple of files that I translated and the client is asking me if there is a way to generate the exact same layout in Adobe Illustrator as the original but in Arabic ...

Do any of you know of a tool that can help ?

Thanks

Mohamed

Use Illustrator May 14, 2010

Dear Mohamed,

Firstly, what is the source files format, is it Indesign, pdf, or illustrator, and how have you translated it with a CAT tool or directly in a word file?
Any way, it seems that you had to use the original files program (Illustrator or Indesign) to edit these files in Arabic, and It had to be the Meddle Eastern version.

I used a PDF file May 14, 2010

Hello,

I used a pdf file and translated in WORD now the client asks me if I can create a file in arabic similar to an ai file and I was wondering if there was a way to use the ai in my CAT directly and generate a translation in that format.

Thanks !

ai File May 14, 2010

Dear Mohamed,

What is ai file?
As you just have the PDF file, you have 2 options, option A is to ask your client for the original file that generate the pdf Indesign or Quark Express or what ever then you can translate that file with your CAT tool then you will have the target Arabic that also need to be checked in Indesign, Quark Express, or whatever.
Option B is to create the Arabic file using Illustrator, or Indesign ME, or to send the source PDF file along with the target Arabic in word to DTPer to do it for you.
