Fun with Optical Recognition

Funny how things work. Yesterday, I whined about the expense involved in my ATA membership and how I hoped I would benefit. That same evening, I found the most recent issue of the ATA’s Chronicle had arrived. And it was full of advice that was actually (gasp!) helpful.

Today I started the translation of yet another report. The good news is that this time the PDF converting program (ScanSoft) actually worked. For the most part, anyway. Acopio became acoplo; cafetal became cacillas. And my favorite one: cartón became carbón. At least it keeps things interesting.
