The XLIFF parts however are all done in the cloud using their TransPDF website. This is quite impressive and you can use this without the InFix PDF Editor at all.Blog post by Paul Filkin, Client Communities Director, Language Solutions, SDL Plc
We understand some PDF authors have concerns about using a public website to process their documents.
That's why we've put together the TransPDF Appliance. It's the ideal solution when you need guaranteed security during translation. It runs inside your intranet, protected by your own security measures. None of your PDFs data goes outside your firewall during the translation process.
The software, available for Macintosh, Windows, Linux and Solaris, is easily installed and virtually maintenance free once up and running.
Usage charges for the private server are the same as for the public server - either 1 credit for each final, translated PDF page or totally free-of-charge with a valid license of Infix PDF Editor.

Don't get bogged-down with layout, tags and code; concentrate on the words instead.

Yes! Upload a scanned or 'dead' PDF and TransPDF will convert it to a real PDF with editable text. It then gets converted to XLIFF ready for translation as normal.

Yes. There is a fully documented API you can use to integrate smart PDF translation into your own applications for free.
The API package consists of a Python demo showing how to access all of the features such as uploading PDFs and exporting XLIFF. The underlying technology is HTTP-based so you don't need to use Python if you don't want to.
When you upload a PDF it is visible to you and only those whom you choose to share it with. Access to TransPDF.com is all done via https (secure web access) which means your passwords and data are encrypted during transit.
If your clients insist of total security, we offer the TransPDF Appliance.
XLIFF is an industry standard XML-based format for translating all kinds of documents and is supported natively by leading tools such as SDL Trados Studio, MemoQ, Memsource, Fluency, TransitNXT and others.
Not yet, unfortunately. TransPDF can only handle languages written left-to-right. Some vertical text is also supported. This means the system is currently not suitable for Arabic, Hebrew etc.
