Skeptic won-over by PDF Translation Technology

I’m reviewing the Infix PDF Editor. I was very skeptical, to be honest, because I just couldn’t see how it would manage to do all it boasted.

My business deals with translations. Many clients send PDF only material which we then have to translate. The process involves having to extract the text, translate the text, and then create, or re-create, the format for them. This process is time consuming and even with extra costs being compensated, it is a huge time management fiasco!

Your software setup was quick, the instructions were simple, and the process was painless.

First, I exported the text into XML format. It asked to save the file, so I simply added a number 2 to the end of the file name. Then I processed the translation as usual, and once done, I imported the text back into the Infix software. Wow, there it was! I did have to tinker with some layout, and I did have to move some text around a bit, but THERE IT WAS!

I think this will be ideal for smaller projects without a lot of formatting issues, but it will certainly be a step-saver even for larger projects.
