Clients often ask if we can translate from PDF files. Of course, the answer is always “yes.” As with any other project, first we must gauge what the client actually needs back from us. Clients’ requirements for deliverables vary from the very basic to complex. Basic PDF localization could be just a simple text file without any of the graphics that the PDF might contain. At the other end of the spectrum, a complex PDF localization might include reproducing the PDF as an Adobe InDesign file with all the graphics, table of contents, etc. Or it could be anywhere in between. Managing expectations is far more important for PDF localization than it is for any other file type.
