How to convert PDF files with Wordfast Pro

This video shows how to convert PDF documents into translatable text with Wordfast Pro. This feature is available in the demo mode of Wordfast Pro, so you can use it even if you don’t have a Wordfast license. Also see my other video about using Wordfast Anywhere to convert “dead” PDF’s.

    I am surprised that this work with the Win version only.
    I found another similar issue and didn’t imagine it was actually WF Pro fault (I was trying to create a custom filter for a file format, using the *.properties file dowloadable from WF – it works in Win, but in Mac it “loses” the file extension I enter.
    Is there a place where those differences between the Win and Mac version are listed side by side?

      The PDF converter included in Wordfast Pro is licensed from BCL, which is Windows-only technology. This is why it is not available in Mac or Linux. I was not aware of the problem with .properties files in Mac, you may want to report it.

      The other difference (between Windows and Mac) I’m aware of is the aligner, which is only available for Windows. On the other hand, it is not a big loss for Mac users, because the Wordfast Pro aligner isn’t very good anyway.
