Your can now easily convert technical reports, academic papers, user manuals and more to over 60 different languages using the new Auto Translate facility in Infix 7.
Simply open your PDF using Infix then choose Translate->Auto Translate... from the menu bar. Choose the original and desired language and press OK to start.
How does it work?
When you start a translation, Infix uploads your PDF to our TransPDF servers. There the text in your document is stripped out and sent to an A.I. translation service. The translated text is then injected back into your PDF and the finished document returned to you in Infix.
In general the process takes around 1 minute per page. You don't need to wait for completion since the system will email you with a download link to download the finished PDF.
How much does it cost?
If you have a current Infix license (one that still offers support and upgrades) you can translate up to 40 pages per month free of charge.
If you don't have a license, your license has expired or you need to translate more than 40 pages, then the cost is around 10¢ / page.
What the difference between auto-translate and TransPDF?
The new Auto-translate facility uses machine intelligence to provide you with a finished, rough translation. It's a great service if all you need is the gist of what your original PDF is about.
TransPDF gives professional translators access to the text in a PDF in a format they can use with their translation systems. They translate the text then upload it back into the PDF.
A professional translator will do a much better translation job than a machine and is vital if you need accuracy from the final PDF.
