;   Medical Translation Insight: More on mastering scanned PDFs in medical translation - ForeignExchange Translations

Optical character recognition tools for scanned PDF filesOur recent entry on working with scanned PDFs drew a lot of comments and suggestions (here as well as on LinkedIn and facebook). No silver bullets but some good tool suggestions.

Of all the tools out there, these two look particularly promising:

  • InstantOCR supports 12 languages and is free. Files are limited to 50 MB.

  • OCR Terminal is also free but limits users to processing 30 pages per day. It seems to be very popular as its servers keep getting overloaded...
Has anybody tried them - in general and with clinical/dossier work specifically?
