Hello,

I'd really value some advice with a tight deadline to meet. I use Wordfast Pro 3.

I have a file which is editable pdf. I tried to upload it on to Wordfast but then came up with an error message. I then converted the pdf to a word file and uploaded that instead. It uploaded but all spaces between source words (Greek) have been removed. I translate Greek documents all the time but have never had this problem before.
Thank you for any guidance anyone can offer.
Kind regards,
Michele

opening pdf file Jul 13, 2013

The following may be a workaround.
Create an account in wordfast anywhere ( freetm.com)
open the pdf file and save as rtf.(download)
then use this file in your WF version or continue working in WFA.

error message Jul 13, 2013

As a computer professional I have to say one thing.
When you get an error message- paste the error message so it will be possible to troubleshoot- that's what I say at work place. Error may be due to million reasons- if I can see the error message- then I will/ can try to troubleshoot in the correct direction and resolution may be faster.
