    Export PDF as XML for translating then importing back translated XML into PDF

    sebdea Level 1

      Hi there,

       

      MAC Mini with OS X 10.10.5, Adobe Acrobat Pro DC 2015.

       

      I am working for a translation company. Sometimes we are receiving PDF files instead of the original editable InDesign or Illustrator files. Trying to edit the PDF files I noticed that they can be edited. However, in some cases it is quite hard to edit lots of text in PDF. It is quite limited. I recall few years ago I used a third party application which allowed me to export a PDF as XML, translate the file and then importing it back into PDF. Re-arraging translated text was quite easy.

       

      I noticed that Acrobat Pro DC has this option to Save As or to Export as XML. However, how do I import/convert the XML translated file back to PDF? I found no option for that.

       

      Please advise.

       

      Thank you.

      Sebastian
