Import InDesign document translation

The magic happens here when you’re importing reviewed excel files to InDesign in order to translate them, if they’re resulting from layers translation new translated layers in InDesign will be created, if they’re resulting from an InDesign document translation they’ll be applied to the InDesign document or the selection directly! a few click and you’re all set !​

Quick InDesign document translation

While you’re editing an Adobe InDesign document that needs a translation and you aren’t sure about the correct translation, don’t head over the browser, you can directly translate your InDesign texts from the InDesign Translator plugin.​

InDesign full document translation

Translator offers you the possibility to translate either the InDesign article's selected frames or the whole InDesign document with a single click, the translation process was optimized and written in an intelligent way to handle even large files without hitting the translation API limits. You can choose to apply InDesign translations directly or export the InDesign translations to an excel document , have your native translator take a look at them for quick corrections , after that simply import them and they’ll be applied to your document.

InDesign layers translation

You have multiple text layers to translate in your InDesign document, every InDesign layer is written in a different language and needs to be translated in InDesign to another language … Seems like something complicated, but we have a solution for that! With the InDesign layers’ translation feature, select the specific layers you want to translate, the source and target languages and hit translate, the InDesign plugin will create a new layer for each one selected with the corresponding language ! for example : “Text” is selected -> Translate -> Text_fr will be created with all the InDesign text frames of “Text” translated to French. Awesome isn’t it? of course you can always export the InDesign translations to excel, have them reviewed and import them back.
