Currently, eJOY offers 2 features to help you translate words while reading text on PDF files. One is the brand-new PDF Translator which was newly released in 2021. And the other one is Advanced Translation. Both of them are really good but be aware that since 2021, PDF Translator has been our main tool for PDF translating.
1. Translating words on PDF files using PDF Translator (*new tool – 2021)
As per your request, our eJOY team developed this new wonderful tool to help you look up new words on PDF files with just one click.
What is special about PDF Translator?
- Translating words and paragraphs instantly on PDF files
- Listen to text on PDF files with Audio Reader
- No need to switch between multiple tabs
- Unlimited translation
To use this feature, just upload the PDF file you already have on your computer to the PDF Translator feature.
Note: eJOY works best on searchable text files. Scanned documents will need the OCR (character recognition) processing before translation, but the translation may not be as smooth. If you really need to use eJOY with a scanned doc, you can google “free PDF OCR”, choose a website to process the file first, then upload the new file to eJOY Translator to look up new words.
We’ll also develop more useful features on eJOY PDF Translator to support you with translating new words on PDF in the future such as saving and organizing files for quick access,…
