PDF Translation Using TransPDF

PDF XLIFF - an industry-standard format used by professional translation tools. Upload a PDF then get the XLIFF version of it from TransPDF. Translate it using your own tools - SDL Trados Studio, memoQ, Memsource etc.

XLIFF PDF - upload your translated XLIFF and TransPDF will inject it back into the original PDF, replacing and reformatting the text as it goes. You get a new PDF back containing all the original artwork, colours and other high-end pre-press information, but in a new language.

Auto-translate - up to 40 pages per month free-of-charge into any of 60+ languages with a valid license. Ideal for a rough translation when you don't need a word-perfect PDF.

Horizontal Flip - Text

When automatic-flip is enabled, text columns, titles, captions etc. are all flipped to ensure a more natural reading order for the target language.

Horizontal Flip - Images

During automatic-flip, images are moved on the page to reflect the change in reading direction but their content is not affected.

Horizontal Flip - Vector Artwork

Vector-based artwork is mirrored when the automatic page-flip is enabled. In many cases this will work fine but in some cases it may be innapropriate. For those PDFs you can disable the auto-flip feature.

Controlling Horizontal Flip

By default, the system will adjust the layout of each page according to the target language direction. Columns of text, images and page furniture are all mirrored to ensure they read correctly in the new writing direction.

To disable this behaviour:

  1. Press the settings button next to your PDF.
  2. Un-check the check-box labelled Horizontal Flip next to the target language for your PDF.
  3. Press the button to go back to your PDF list.
  4. Press the next to your PDF.
