I used Wordfast Pro (version 2.4.0.1) to translate a PDF file. When I open the translation in Word, the translation is there, but the original PDF is superimposed over the text. I tried viewing the text in Normal mode and then copying the text, but the PDF is still there. Is there a setting to remove this? Thanks.

Dear Jeff,

Please open the generated DOC in MS Word and place the cursor on any page corner. The cursor will turn into a cross to select an image. Click to select the image and press the "Delete" button on your keyboard. Now, you should have got rid of the image layer.

This happens for a specific sort of OCRed PDF files, and the solution is what I mentioned above.

Thanks Dec 30, 2010

Thank you. That worked, but I had to delete the image on each page individually. This was a short document so not a problem. For future reference, is there a way to do this automatically for the entire document?

Thanks for the update reminder.
