How to translate a PDF file

PDF is a very useful format for exchanging and evaluating electronic documents. However, limitations will surface when files are changed, such as when making corrections or translating. I can help you select the best option for translating your PDF files.

Translation of PDF source

PDFs are always based on a source document, for example from a DTP program like InDesign or Publisher. I can normally process this source document directly.

Benefits:
  • No additional costs
  • Retain original layout
  • No reformatting
  • Shorter translation turnaround time

Alternative for PDF translation

If the source document is not available, I can use conversion tools like Adobe Acrobat or PDF to Word to export the PDF as an editable Office file. I will charge a small additional fee for this service. Depending on the complexity of the layout of the PDF, the layout of the document may differ slightly.

Basing the translation on the original source document is always preferable and is the most financially advantageous.
