Translate a Foreign Language PDF

January 13, 2022

Google has some great tools. One of those is Google Translate. If you receive a PDF document in a foreign language, just use Google Translate to translate it. How-To Geek has a post with the detailed steps to translate a PDF document. You won’t be able to directly download the translated document to another PDF, but you can copy the translated text to the clipboard to paste into a new document. There is also an option to use Word. You convert the PDF to Word, translate the Word document and then convert it back to a PDF. You may lose some original formatting using the Word translation method.

The post has the detailed steps along with screenshots. Don’t forget that Google Translate can also translate website pages and not just documents.
