We understand your concerns and hope to answer them here. If you have further questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
Question: Will the Multilingual PDF contain “Google” quality translations?
Answer: No. The translations are carried out previously by highly-qualified and experienced professionals (native speakers of the target language). The process will be the same as all other projects handled by QuickSilverTranslate.com
Question: Can I send a Multilingual PDF via e-mail? Will the recipient be able to see the translations?
Answer: Yes, all the translations are contained within the Multilingual PDF so that they can be read by the recipient, even if they are offline.
Question: Can I send a Multilingual PDF to the printer? What language will it print to?
Answer: Yes, you can send it to your printer just like a normal PDF. It will be printed in whichever language you have selected at the time.
Question: How big is a Multilingual PDF? Will it be considerably larger than a normal PDF?
Answer: Not usually. What makes a file huge is the resolution of graphics and photographs, but text (and therefore translations) doesn’t. Graphics and photographs are stored only once in the Multilingual PDF, keeping the file practically as small as the original, monolingual version.
Question: How expensive is a Multilingual PDF?
Answer: The minimum price is €150. Typically, this will be a single file in two languages and a maximum of four pages. For more files, languages or pages, we would need to analyse it and prepare a quote. You can send a request to firstname.lastname@example.org
Question: Do I have to use QuickSilverTranslate’s translation service or can I have a Multilingual PDF with my own translations?
Answer: You can send us your original file (in PDF format or otherwise) and your existing translation, and we will combine them into a Multilingual PDF for you.
Question: Can QuickSilverTranslate.com help me with layout/desktop publishing?
Answer: Yes, we can help you design or modify your original file, extract text, translate and lay the translations out, anything you need! Just write to email@example.com
Question: Is the Multilingual PDF editable?
Answer: No, it is not editable by the user.
Question: What document formats can I convert into a Multilingual PDF?
Answer: We can convert practically anything into a Multilingual PDF, but the more usual formats are MS Word, MS Powerpoint, Adobe Illustrator and Adobe InDesign.
Question: Can I read a Multilingual PDF directly in my browser?
Answer: Normally yes, provided that you set the Adobe PDF Reader as your default PDF reader. It is usually best to download the file and use a compatible reader such as Adobe Acrobat or PDF Reader (download here for free)
