  • Can I translate an audio file

    Unfortunately, the app cannot translate audio files right now. You can translate your voice, but not the sound.

  • Why can't I translate my document

    Unfortunately, we can’t translate all documents because it can be difficult to extract the text from some of them. Especially it is difficult to work with pdf format 

    It is much easier to convert and translate doc, docx format. So one of the workarounds is to convert pdf to docx before translation using this service. If after converting you see that the text is corrupted or empty it means that probably it is not possible to extract text and translate this document.If nothing works for you but you still need to translate the text you can extract text manually from your document to docx or doc format. After that, you can translate this document.

  • Why the translated text overlapped in the document with the original text
