im hoping someone out there can read japanese, and may be generous enough to do a little translation of a set of plans i have on PDF for a home built rc jet.

its just a sentence here and there on each page. maybe a paragraph per page tops and probably only 12pages long.

any help would be greatly appreciated as adobe does not recognise it as text so i cannot simply copy/paste into an online translator.

thanks in advance.

plans for small diy foam jet rc.

It's a shame it's in a PDF file and not on a web page - cos I have the bable fish addon for firefox and that is real handy for things like that, but I need to be able to high light the text in the browser window.

I don't think there is a similar app for PDF files.

yeah i know what you mean.

i have tried thisscreen ocr program which you can use a drag box and it apparently converts the image to text, but i dont have jap characters on my pc so it comes out as jargon.

maybe i need to find a way to add the japanese char's to windows xp/ie9

i was hoping someone who is jap/eng multilingual might be on these forums
