I have translated PDFs from Wordfast before with no problem but this one PDF doc seems to load only the first page onto wordfast.
I tried saving the translated file (which then appears with the whole 2p text in word format) but when I try to load the text from the new format: .pdf.doc) (given by wordfast to the translated file), it still only shows the first page on Wordfast.
It is a small text so I will select and copy source eventually but I wonder what I could do if this were a large PDF with many pages. It seems to me previous versions of wordfast rendered a finished whole pdf as "saved translated file"

Using Wordfast pro 2.4.4

Dear Ode,

Could the second page be an image? On the PDF file, can you select one or two words from the second page?

Kind regards,

Hello Yasmin,

For some reason I did not get your answer through my mail and only saw it now (May 18th).
Job was canceled. But you are right there was an image and text over it that I could not select.
Thank you
