In business settings the PDF format is popular for documents because it preserves document structures and formatting that might be lost otherwise. When preserving documents in their original form is necessary, office suites like Microsoft Office and Open Office can't be trusted. That's where businesses turn to the PDF.
But what if you have a PDF in a foreign language? You could copy the text and paste it into an online Website like Google Translator or, you can use a tool like Babylon 9 with built-in PDF translation. Babylon's PDF support is compatible with English, Spanish, German, Japanese, and many more.
PDF Translation with Acrobat Reader
In Babylon 9, PDF translation works best if the user is reading PDF files with Adobe's Acrobat Reader. As long as the "enable protection mode at start-up" option is left unchecked in Acrobat the two software programs work seamlessly together. If you don't already have Acrobat Reader you can download it for free from literally hundreds of sites across the Internet. Or you can get it directly from Adobe.
If you're using a third-party PDF reader you still may be able to accomplish PDF translation with Babylon. The only way to know for sure is to try it. If it doesn't work, there's no harm in downloading Acrobat. The free Acrobat software is available for Windows, Mac, Linux, and BSD. It's even available for Android and Blackberry devices too.
How PDF translation works
The great thing about the Babylon software is that you don't need to learn individual keystrokes and mouse functions for different types of documents. It all works the same regardless of the format. So if you're reading a PDF document and you need to translate a single word you can use the one-click feature by:
- holding down the Ctrl key
- right clicking the word you need translated
- looking in the pop-up box for spelling, definition, and multiple translations
If you need to translate an entire block of text you can highlight it in your PDF document, copy it, and then paste it into the main Babylon window. You'll have different languages to choose from in the drop-down menu depending on what dictionaries you've enabled in your system options. From there you click the "translate" button and you're good to go.
PDF translation of lots of documents
The one difficulty you might have with Babylon's PDF translation comes by way of locked documents. Even with protection mode turned off in Acrobat, some document writers protect their text by locking in on their end. Depending on the locking method they use, you might not be able to translate using Babylon. In that case the best you could do is manually type the text into the main Babylon window.
If you frequently use PDF documents that require translation into different languages Babylon 9 is software you'll probably appreciate. Babylon is the world leader in translation software, offering a ton of features and support for more than 75 languages.
