Translate scanned PDFs with TransPDF

We all know TransPDF makes the job of translating PDFs faster and easier than it’s ever been. If only it could handle our scanned PDFs, it’d be so much better…

Well now it can!

We’ve added automatic conversion (OCR) of scanned PDFs to make them fully editable and translatable. Simply upload your PDF to TransPDF and you’ll get beautifully clean XLIFF in return.

There’s no additional charge for the service but we do deduct your final-PDF fee at the start of the process rather than at the end like normal, even for users with a valid Infix license.

Try it now, it’s fab!

How To Use iOS 3D Touch Function to Print to PDF

If you’re using an iPhone model 6s onwards, then you’ll be able to use the 3D Touch functionality to do all sorts of commands, depending on the app you’re using.

This feature is used across a wide range of apps for different purposes, one of the most common being the “Print” function.
