Translate documents online while preserving the original formatting

How can I translate website content while preserving the original format? This article looks at the different ways you can translate website content while preserving the original format.

Translating documents while maintaining the original format can be a challenge. Sometimes, we are faced with the need to translate documents online with a specific format (fonts, tables, designs, etc) that can be difficult to conserve during translation. There are a range of document translation services available on the internet, but many do not respect the original format. Even so, some online applications can do it, but they have limitations.

What are the limitations of these kinds of online translation applications?

  • Translation using Google Translate technology: Google has one of the most widely used translation services, receiving millions of translation requests every day. However, the translations it provides are not always loyal to the original texts.
  • Formats compatible with Microsoft Office: they have limitations in terms of their capacity to support different formats. In general, translations are supported by Microsoft Office formats: .docx, .pdf, .pptx, .xlsx, etc.
  • Slow translation processes: most applications have features that are still in the testing stages, which can affect translation speed, making the translation rather slow.
  • Limitations in document size: when working with large documents, it can be difficult to find an online translation application capable of processing them. This is important to consider when undertaking a translation project.
  • Requires the installation of Java software: in order to use these applications, it is necessary to install Java software, which is sometimes not possible on all computers. Without downloading this software, the application will not work.
