Way 1. Translate PDF from English to Gujarati By Copying and Pasting

If you're looking to translate just a portion of your PDF from English to Gujarati, this method is perfect for you. Follow these steps:

Step 1: Open your PDF in UPDF

Once UPDF is installed on your computer, launch the application. To begin, we're going to open a PDF document called "whitepaper." Simply click on "Open File" in UPDF, select "whitepaper" from your files, and then click "Open" to load your document. We are using a Mac in this example.

Step 2: Copy the Desired Content

Now, select and copy the portion of text from your PDF that you want to translate into Gujarati.

Step 3: Launch UPDF AI

Next, navigate to the UPDF AI feature by clicking the rainbow "x" icon in the right-hand corner. When you click on it, a chat window should open, allowing you to interact with the AI. Make sure you are in "Chat" mode.

Step 4: Enter Translation Prompt

In UPDF AI, type in a translation prompt and paste the text from the PDF you copied earlier.  A simple translation prompt is: "Translate to Gujarati: [Paste the Content Here]." Hit enter to kick off the translation.

Step 5: Copy or Export Your Translation

All done! You can now copy the translated text for immediate use or export it for later. To do this, hover over the translated text in UPDF AI. A toolbar above the text should appear. Click the first icon to export the text, or click the last icon to copy the text.

Way 2. Translate PDF from English to Gujarati By Converting and UPDF AI

This method is perfect for translating the entire content of a PDF document. It involves an extra conversion step but is straightforward overall.

Step 1: Convert PDF to Word

Using our previous example of the "whitepaper" document, if it's already open in UPDF, the first step is to convert it to a Word document. To do this, click on "File," then "Export To," and choose "Microsoft Word." This action converts your PDF into a Word document.

Step 2: Copy the Text

Next, select and copy all the text from the newly created Word document. On a Mac, you can select all text using the Command + A shortcut, and on Windows, use Ctrl + A.

Step 3: Access UPDF AI

Now, open the UPDF AI feature by clicking the rainbow "x" icon located in the bottom right-hand corner. Make sure you're in "Chat" mode by selecting the appropriate tab in the chat window that opens up.

Step 4: Prompt for Translation

In the chat window, prompt the AI for translation to Gujarati by typing something like "Translate to Gujarati: [Paste the Content Here]." After pasting the copied text from your Word document, press enter to initiate the translation process. Once the translation is complete, you can either copy the Gujarati text for immediate use or export it as needed.

Way 3. Translate Scanned PDF from English to Gujarati By OCR and UPDF AI

If your PDF is a scan or contains image-based text, UPDF's OCR (Optical Character Recognition) feature is super handy, making text editable and translatable. Here's how to take advantage of the power of UPDF for translating scanned PDFs:

Step 1: Activate OCR Feature

Open your scanned PDF with UPDF. Go to the OCR feature, which is on the right-hand toolbar. Select this feature to begin converting your scanned images into editable text.

Step 2: Choose OCR Settings

Within the OCR settings, select the language of your scanned document (in this case, English) and specify any other preferences you might have for the OCR process. Confirm your settings and start the OCR. The text in your PDF will become selectable and editable.

Step 3: Copy the Text

Once OCR is complete, select and copy the text you wish to translate from your document.

Step 4: Translate with UPDF AI

Access the UPDF AI by clicking the rainbow "x" icon. Once in the chat window, paste your copied text and type the command to translate to Gujarati. You can use a simple prompt like: "Translate to Gujarati: [Paste the Content Here]." Hit enter, and UPDF AI will provide you with the translated text, which you can then copy or export as needed.

Part 2. How Can Google Translate English to Gujarati in PDF File?

Another option you can try is to upload your PDF file to Google Translate and have it translated from English to Gujarati. To do this, follow these steps:

Step 1: Navigate to Google Translate

Search for Google Translate in any internet search bar and go to the website.

Step 2: Switch to "Document" Mode

Click on "Document" so that you can upload a PDF file to Google Translate. On the page, you should see a bar that says "Browse your files." 

Step 3: Select Languages

Before uploading your PDF, select "English" as the original document language and "Gujarati" as the target translation language.

Step 4: Upload Your PDF.

Find the PDF file you wish to translate by clicking "Browse your files." For this example, we are working on a Mac, and we want to translate "whitepaper."

Step 5: Translate.

Click the "Translate" button and wait as Google processes the document.

Step 6: Open translation.

Click the blue bar that says "Open Translation" to see a translated version of your PDF document.

You should see your Google Translate English to Gujarati PDF file open in another tab.

Google Translate is definitely another good option for translation. However, there are several issues you may run into.

One issue is the formatting; when you download the translated document from Google Translate, the layout of the original document may not be preserved accurately.

Also, the translation of complex graphics and tables may not be appropriately rendered, which can affect the document's presentation and readability.

If you use this option, you may want to double-check your formatting and graphics before you publish the document.

Part 3. How to Translate English to Gujarati in PDF Online With Google Docs?

Another way to translate PDFs from English to Gujarati is to use Google Docs. This involves first converting your PDF into a Google Docs file and then translating the document using the built-in features of Google Docs. Use these steps:

Step 1: Sign in to Google Drive

Go to Google Drive and log in to your Google account. If you don't have an account, you will have to create one.

Step 2: Upload Your PDF

On the upper left-hand corner, click on the "+ New" icon.

Select "File upload" from the drop-down menu. Locate and select the PDF file you wish to translate on your computer.

Select the PDF you wish you translate. For this example, we are using a Mac and uploading "whitepaper" into Google Drive. Click "Open" to upload the file to your Google Drive.

Step 3: Convert PDF to Google Docs Format

Right-click on the uploaded PDF file. Choose "Open With" and then click "Google Docs." Google Drive will automatically begin converting the PDF into an editable Google Docs document.

Step 4: Access the Translation Tool

With the document now open in Google Docs, click on "Tools" in the top menu bar. From the drop-down list, select "Translate document…"

Step 5: Set Up Document Translation

In the translation window that appears, enter a name for the translated document in the provided text field. Choose "Gujarati" from the list of languages available for translation in the drop down menu.

Step 6: Translate and Create New Document

Click the "Translate" button. Google Docs will create a new document in a new tab, containing your PDF's content translated into Gujarati.

Limitations of Translation Tool in Google Docs

Google Docs offers a quite simple way to translate documents. However, several issues must be mentioned:

  • Loss of Formatting: The conversion of the document from PDF to Google Docs may sacrifice the exact format of the original document. A person has to notice if there are shifts in layout, changes in fonts, and misalignment.
  • Translation of Graphics and Tables: Items such as graphics, tables, and images cannot be adequately converted. So, the user would need to readjust them manually after the translation.
  • Translation Accuracy: Automated translation, as a rule, does not reflect all context nuances. Therefore, before submission, the document must be checked whether there are mistakes.

By following these steps, you can more effectively navigate the process of translating a PDF from English to Gujarati using Google Docs, but keep in mind the potential challenges along the way.
