Pdf language translation as a modern tool

Documents in “portable document format”, commonly known as pdf documents, have become very popular in the last years. The main reason of it is because they allow users to exchange reliable information independent of operating system, hardware or software. In addition these types of documents also have great resolution.  One of the most common requests from users is pdf language translation or pdf file translation.  Despite its format offers security, this function makes it difficult to translate.

PDF language translation – how to do it

The first way to translate pdf documents requires converting them to Word format. In this way the document can be imported in translation tools, thus making it easier to translate. It takes additional time and effort; therefore users and programmers have continued to seek new ways that ease the pdf file translation task. One of these programs is MemoQ.

Other options allow you to translate the document without having to convert it. Several programs such as Google translator, translator toolkit or Microsoft, have these types of functions. But they have the following 2 limitations:

  • The file should not be password protected; otherwise the translation tools won´t be able to read the content.
  • The translation doesn’t keep the layout of the original pdf document, so it makes necessary to work on it again to add the original features. Results usually show tags and line breaks that need to be repaired.

An additional option requires finding the original document. You must remember that PDF documents and files always come from other types of documents. Most common original sources of PDF documents are Adobe Creative (Photshop, FrameMaker and others), Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, Power Point), Database files and scanned files. If you are able to find one of these original formats, then you no longer need to use the PDF file as you can have your original document translated while keeping the original layout too.

Are there any tools to provide pdf file translation?

More recently, a new tool to translate pdf documents has emerged. The site allows you to upload your pdf document and obtain the translation in few minutes with more or less the original layout. It seems to be the solution for all the above mentioned problems. However, users complain the interface is not friendly enough, and the quality of the translation is not great either. There is another option called Multilizer which allows the same functions to translate pdf documents but it is a paid program. It offers a free downloadable version which shows basic features and allows user to try the potential of the program.

The software is not free and the translation is done by a machine, therefore it isn’t 100% accurate. The layout of the translated file will be more or less like the original, depending on its complexity.

Since most people need accurate translation services, you can’t rely on a machine to do it for you. By having your PDF file professionally translated by a translation agency you make sure the translation is of the highest quality and the layout will remain the same.

We can do it for you!

What is a PDF file?

There are numerous formats in which documents are presented today, but the most common and widely used format is the portable document format, which is commonly referred to as PDF. Many companies and agencies ask for all their documents to be in PDF format as the page layout and format does not change with the type and version of the device being used to open it. Unlike other types of documents, the PDF format is highly portable and can be opened on just about any modern device regardless of the operating system being used.

The drawback of this type of document is that it can be challenging to translate and bring it back in the same layout as the original document. To make PDF translation easier for people, Universal Translation Services provides this service at an affordable price. The final translated document is provided to the clients in the original layout and format.

How to translate a PDF document

PDF documents have swiftly become a standard for business communications. When you are creating a document with a precise layout, businesses will generally use a PDF file. The PDF standard is highly reliable and allows receivers of a document to see it and print it in the same way that the document’s creators made it. PDF documents are usually received in a non-editable format, making them safer and less prone to tampering or simple human errors that might invalidate data carried in other forms.

Unlike editable documents from Microsoft Word or other word processing software, PDF files can be used on any platform. For the most part, users cannot alter, change, or manipulate PDF documents, so it makes sense to use them when communicating with other companies.

PDFs are capable of maintaining exact formatting regardless of the platform they are used on, which makes them great for marketing or business dealings. But when it comes to translation, there may be issues unless you have the original document the pdf file is based on.
