A new benefit has been added to the ProZ.com Plus service package.

You can then convert your translated XLIFF back to PDF. Every final PDF from transpdf.com can be edited free-of-charge with Infix PDF Editor 7.

TransPDF works via the exchange of credits. Users are granted 25 free credits upon sign up, and can then purchase credits as needed. TransPDF now offers ProZ.com Plus subscribers an additional 10 free credits per month as part of their Plus subscription. ProZ.com users who are not Plus subscribers, or Plus subscribers who have used their monthly allotment of credits may purchase credits at a discounted rate via ProZ.com.
