Working with MS Office Suites in documents translation

Today, documents of Microsoft Office mainly Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint  make up a significant portion of the work in the translation market. Because these formats are so common, it is impossible to find a CAT program which cannot handle them. Support for basic formatting, translation preview, and working with revisions are just some of the capabilities implemented for Word, Excel and PowerPoint formats in the modern CAT tools.

What is PDF

PDF otherwise known as Adobes portable document format is a file format used to present and exchange documents reliably, independent of software, hardware, or operating system. When you save a document or image as an Adobe PDF, it looks just the way you intended it to regardless of the devices local settings.

Working with Adobe PDF in documents translation

The Adobe PDF format has become the foremost global standard for secure transmission of sensitive business information that must preserve its sophisticated formatting. If PDF documents are received for translation, we need to prepare it for use with CAT tools.

Sometimes we approach our clients to send us the original document that the PDF was created from. No document is created in PDF in the first place. Every PDF has an underlying document format – they can be created in Microsoft Word, Apple Pages, Adobe InDesign, Adobe Framemaker, or several other applications (regular PDF), or they can also be scanned documents (scanned PDF) or images. However, sometimes that may not be an option. In that case we use pdf to .doc converter software or OCR software.

Working with Adobe Photoshop and illustrator in documents translation

Adobe Illustrator is a vector graphics editor software developed and marketed by Adobe Systems. Over the years Adobe Illustrator has become the standard software when it comes to illustration design. There are multiple file formats in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop so it requires special attention to ensure it is translated correctly for its intended audience.
