1 Conversions for Translation
In the world of multilingual publishing, a common challenge is content in non-editable formats. Whether it's PDFs, scanned documents, or graphics with embedded text – these formats often pose a hurdle before the translation process begins. L.TXT offers a tailored solution by converting your static documents into dynamic, editable formats that seamlessly integrate into your CAT (Computer-Assisted Translation) tools.


Our technology makes your non-editable documents editable again by preparing them for processing. We ensure that converted files are correctly segmented after import into your CAT systems and do not contain superfluous tags and formatting errors.

Formatting Competence

Whether it’s images, scans, or PDF files, we can provide the editable format of your choice – from Word documents and Excel spreadsheets to PowerPoint presentations, InDesign files and Autocad drawings.

Precise 1-to-1 Layout

We create an exact replica of your original document with automatically updated links, tables of contents and alphabetical indexes, as requested.

Lightweight Formatting

For projects where the formatting needs to be similar but not identical to the original, we offer adapted, 'lighter' formatting. We always guarantee 100% compatibility of the converted files with your CAT tool.

ISO-Certified DTP Services for Translation

With ISO-certified DTP processes, L.TXT ensures the highest quality in document conversion for translation. We provide precise, CAT-tool compatible files, optimized for multilingual use.

  3. Document formatting: Fine-tuning of the layout is done with careful attention to the original formatting.
  4. Comparison with the original: We ensure that the converted document matches the original to any desired degree of accuracy.
  5. Final check: A final quality control confirms that the document is ready for translation and contains no errors.
