Today I received the following e-mail from Wordfast Anywhere: 'We bring PDFs to life. Convert and translate scanned PDFs for free'.
After logging in to Wordfast Anywhere, what should I do to convert a PDF? Thanks and regards, AT

upload the doc Apr 7, 2011

I haven't tried, but I assume that the concept involves uploading the PDF document, since this is the way Wf Anywhere works for other documents.

Translating scanned PDFs with WF Anywhere Apr 7, 2011

Hi,

In order to translate a scanned PDF with Wordfast Anywhere, go to www.freetm.com and create your free account. Once you are inside of the WFA workspace, go to File > upload document file. The document upload dialog box will appear. Browse to the location of the scanned PDF on your machine. Then, click submit. Wordfast Anywhere will automatically convert the scanned PDF to RTF format. It may take a few moments, but you will then see the document ready for translation inside of the translation pane.

If you are new to Wordfast Anywhere, you should refer to the getting started guide here - http://anywhere.wordfast.net/firsthelp.html
You can all refer to the full user guide here - http://www.wordfast.net/anywhere/WFA_help.htm

Hope this helps.

Kristyna
