| CompuTip - Translate a Hebrew Document T175

Ami Raz

Receive an email with a Hebrew document and want an English translation? 


The Document is in Word Format

Open it in Word.  Save the document as an HTML file.  Open Chrome.  Use Ctrl+O to open your computer's filing system.  Locate the HTML file that you just saved and double click on it to view it in Chrome.  Right click on a blank spot and choose Translate.  If needed, specify English.  For more information about translating, email me for my "Short Guide to Computer Translating."

The Document is in a PDF Format

Use the SmallPDF website to convert it into a Word file.  Then follow the instructions above.

The conversion of a Hebrew PDF document will work if it was originally a text document that was saved in PDF format.  A PDF document which contains a scanned image will not convert properly.  You need a Hebrew OCR (Optical Character Recognition) program to do this.  Unfortunately, I haven't found a free program that will do this properly.

While some of the formatting gets lost, the basic translation is surprisingly good.

The method above works with many other languages, besides Hebrew and English.

Please note:  Unfortunately, I cannot take any responsibility for use of the software, directions or links suggested. I have no interest - financial or otherwise - in the software or sites listed.  Use at your own risk.

Best Wishes,
