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!

SDL’s Paul Filkin takes a look at Infix 7

Language Division’s Client Communities Director – Paul Filkin gets to grips with Infix 7 and TransPDF.com to translate a real-world PDF.
It’s fair to say he likes what he sees both with Infix 7 and the XLIFF translation facilities of TransPDF.com.

“This is really a wonderful tool even without the translation options.”

Paul helpfully includes screenshots and a short movie showing his efforts translating a highly styled car brochure.
Finally he ends with his own wish-list for features he’d like to see in future from us.

No more sticky fingers on my laptop

As a 50+ techie dinosaur who struggles to keep up with 10 year olds I find your PDF editor really easy to use.

I work in Education with vulnerable pupils in different establishments who have the concentration span of a newt and an aversion to most things pen and paper.

Having invested years in preparing antiquated sheets I am not yet ready to let them go and the newts are not yet ready to manage without them.

We now combine their love of tech with my love of antique. We work on a laptop with the same enthusiasm that I experienced with pen and paper all those years ago. We fill in prepared sheets and comment on all sorts of things.

I am not yet able to show colleagues how wonderful your product is because I use my own laptop and work uses other software. Ease of use and price normally persuades bosses and I’d love to try. A free licence would impress them enough to allow an install on my equally antiquated laptop and an expansion of users on the ‘Monkey see Monkey do’ principle.

No more sticky fingers on my laptop. Win Win.

Editing PDF Landscape Plans with Infix

Ok, I’m writing this because want the free licence, and I do like the software. I’d not bother otherwise.

Why’s that? Because this is the first pdf editor which I tried that did exactly what I wanted in under 2 minutes, without me having any prior experience with it at all. That was after spending a good few hours looking for and trying various different pdf editors from all over the web. How frustrating!

Search & replace through hundreds of PDFs

I tried several PDF editors before giving Infix PDF Editor a try, and I’ll never have to try another! I even have Adobe Acrobat Pro, which I assumed would cover all of my PDF needs, but it’s glaring lack of a single feature which I assumed would be available, and commonly required by many users, sent me searching for a better PDF solution.

I had a batch of hundreds of documents, all of which were titled with our university department’s name. When the department consolidated and changed it’s official name, I needed to perform a simple search and replace from the old name to the new, on all the documents. This is a simple batch procedure, and I was amazed that Acrobat Pro did NOT have this capability. It seemed so obvious I was tempted to ask Adobe for my money back! After seeing positive reviews for Infix PDF Editor online, I downloaded the trial version and was blown away! The interface is incredibly intuitive. Without reading any documentation, it took me about 2 minutes to figure out how to set up my batch find and replace, and the whole job executed within minutes. The replaced text flawlessly adopted the font style and size of the original text, and flowed perfectly.

Sorry Adobe, I paid for your product and it came up short. Infix PDF Editor is the ticket!

Redacting PDFs – easy and secure with Infix

I just wanted to send off a quick note to you – I am so impressed with your Infix PDF Editor. I am not the most savvy tech person out there, so I think that if I am able to use your product, most anyone out there should be able to do so as well.

I was looking for a program that would allow me to black out text in PDFs. I really don’t have the budget for a higher priced solution at this time, so I was thrilled to learn that you had an option for me.

Previously, I had to pull up PDFs in an image editing program (not Photoshop as that is waaay above my head) and fiddle around with stupid black boxes to cover up the sensitive information. Again, I know that I’m not the smartest when it comes to graphics and all of that, but it was something that I could on my own. Then I read that it would be possible to somehow strip away the boxes I made and see the information underneath? Scared the daylights out of me, to be honest.

I AM pretty good at web searches at least, and I saw your Infix program while looking for a more secure method. It looked to be something that I could handle, so I gave it a try. I was really, really impressed at how easy it was. All I had to do was select the text ( I CAN copy and paste…lol ), then pick redact text I think it was and the sensitive information is covered up. I will have to take you at your word that it can’t be removed to see the information underneath, as I have no way of testing that on my own.

So, a big thanks for making my life a little bit easier and more secure. I highly recommend this program…was very easy to use and really no learning curve at all. Keep up the great work!

– Brian Fulton

Edit: Please be assured, redaction is completley secure in Infix – once blacked-out, there’s no way anyone can reveal the original text or image.


Editing educational PDFs – a user perspective

In my job, I have many documents that I use which need to be altered. I often need to delete text, and objects, to protect identifiable information, I also need to editorialize the documents to explain and educate.

I prefer to use PDF format files. They are easier to work with when I scan and they are universally accepted as a final product. Infix is great, because there are never any issues with the documents looking presentable when someone is using a different program to open the PDF, which is often an issue when using word, google docs or open office to edit the documents.

I use the program in its advanced version, since I’d like to access all the features. It’s still fairly simple to use most features, though, if I’m honest, there’s so many advanced features that I’ve had to refer to the user manual more than once. The user manual is well written, very readable and demonstrates how to achieve the desired effects. So far I’m very happy with Infix.
