Chinese Translator’s Time Saver

I am a professional English – Chinese translator and sometimes I get source files in PDF format. Before I tried Infix PDF editor, I used to do the formatting manually using Microsoft Word. Although similar end results can be achieved using Word, it takes a long time to draw the tables and insert logos, etc. I find Infix PDF editor to be very useful, because I only need to edit the text rather than worrying about the formatting, which saves a lot of time for translators like me.

Here is a summary of the advantages of Infix PDF editor that are particularly useful for me:
1. The software supports Chinese characters so I am able to produce documents in Chinese without any problems (unlike some other software).
2. There is “check spelling” and “find replace” functions, just like Microsoft Word.
3. The software is very useful for filling out PDF forms, without the need to physically printing out the forms, saving time and paper.

By looking through the menu options, there are many tools I have yet to explore (e.g. crop tool, stamps, etc.). I am sure that these will be useful for my work in the future. I highly recommend this software to everyone.

Inspired to blog by PDF editing awesomeness!

Awesome software!

I wanted to edit PDF price lists received from my suppliers, change the prices to my sales prices, send to my clients. I could not do so in other software.

I tried many others – downloaded, tried, un-installed – but could not get the result I wanted. On Infix – it was so easy and a breeze to change.

Infix – a real ‘fix’ for PDF editing

At my level I need to import a lot of text, graphical information into documents and create coherent document in PDF formats for distribution. These documents after circulation comes back with corrections and suggestions and it took me a lot of time to re-work on the original documents and then re-convert them to PDF and compare with the revised proof, and this was cumbersome and prone to errors, going in cycles till I achieved the revised document.

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!

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.

A pocket review of Infix PDF Editor

Pros:

  • Easy to edit and create PDFs.
  • Lot of functionality.
  • Different editions to suit your tasks and budget.
  • Russian menu.
  • Navigation is clear if you’re familiar with any standard word processing program.
  • Comparably low price.

Cons:

  • Watermark is embedded into saved pages or new files in demo-version.

Extremely handy tool for creating and editing PDF, with OCR, spell checking, CAT-related capabilities and much more. Main menu is similar to word processors’ one, it’s very simple and there’s even no need for detailed downloadable user’s manual. This software is that an impressive as there almost no full-featured free PDF editors right now, most of them are shareware with strict limitations

If you simply need to create PDF you can use a wide variety of programs, but in most cases you can’t directly edit the result afterwards, or you have nothing to do but print PDFs you got. Or, suppose, you received some questionnaire in PDF and don’t want to print it out, then fill it in, then scan it into, then… In such a cases the Infix PDF Editor is indispensable, and even unregistered version will not apply a watermark when working in form-filling mode!
