View Full Version : translate an entire pdf file ?

Hello,

Are there tools that allow one to translate an entire pdf file (in my case from Finnish to English) ?
(I know the English will be bad, but it will be easier to read than the Finnish version; besides: it concerns a manual so no "advanced" language there)

Thanks

Get Google to cache it, then "display as HTML" and do whatever you would do for HTML?

Presumably the problem you are having is PDF translation, not finnish to english? Because the two are probably quite separate...

Nope, the problem is the Finnish language... The file displays ok, but I don't know Finnish (and however said my dialect is similar, is wrong :D).

Oh well, one of the Finns will have to help then... :)

The file is too big (about 85 pages)... Of course, I could try to convert it to html, and then use the tools you referred to...
