Recently received a pdf file. When I uploaded the source (TA>EN) was all garbled. Reported back to the agency that the file was not typed in Unicode but ttf, so was getting garbled and sent a screenshot. Tried to convert pdf to word, that too was garbled.So had to do manually in word/do formatting per original etc. 3 days of work totally.
Is there a way to upload this pdf file ( or even a word doc typed in ttf) in wordfast pro 3.2.2?

Unicode vs. TTF? Dec 16, 2013

I'm not sure what you refer to when you say "not typed in Unicode but TTF". I take it TTF refers to TrueType fonts. Unicode is about encoding, TTF are types of fonts.

Maybe the built-in PDF converter in Wordfast Pro doesn't support fonts used for Tamil. Have you tried the converted included in Wordfast Anywhere?

Have you ever been able to convert other PDF's with text in Tamil in them?

Thanks for the suggestion. I tried WFA too but getting error message "error submitting upload". Unless you know which ttf is used, you cannot try using the online converter to convert to Unicode for portability. I get word/notepad/excel jobs in Unicode and without hassles I am able to do.
I even tried to use acrobat to convert the pdf to word doc, but to no success.
On loading in WFpro 3.2.2, a segment looks like this
