Convert and Translate

Brian converts your PDF (native and scanned), PNG, JPG files into any Microsoft Office format and translates it in one step!


You find translations annoying? And then you also have to edit the PDF file? What might have been your kryptonite in the past is now done in a snap. Just ask Brian so that he gladly can take over this tedious task.


Brian supports different formats to meet your unique needs and requirements:

  • Input formats: pdf, png, jpg, jpeg, tif, gif
  • Output formats: docx, xlsx, pptx
  • Note: if you do not provide the output format, Brian converts the files to MS Word.

Brian translates your files to more than 100 languages…  You can have a look here, to get an  overview of supported formats and languages for translation.

Please consider that the translation quality depends on the language pair, wording, and content domain.



  • In case of native PDFs (created digitally) the conversion is executed by a library running on our servers
  • In case of scanned PDFs and pictures (using Optical Character Recognition – OCR) the provider is ABBYY


  • The translation from/to the following languages is performed by Deepl: Bulgarian, Chinese, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Estonian, French, Finnish, German, Greek, Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Latvian, Lithuanian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Slovak, Slovenian, Swedish, Turkish, Ukrainian.
  • The translation from/to all other languages is performed by Professional Google Translate APIs.
  • If you don’t state the source language, language detection and translation might be performed by Professional Google Translate APIs.


For troubleshooting, consider the following:

  • Please share with Brian the actual file – not a link (e.g. to sharepoint), Brian has no access to your file system
  • The translation works also if you don’t name the source language, but this might have a negative impact on the translation quality
  • If you don’t mention the target language, your file will be translated into English
  • Please attach one document only. If you need the same file translated to multiple languages, send Brian multiple emails
  • Files having characters like % \ / : * ? ” < > | # in their file names are not supported on MS Teams
  • Brian translates files up to 10 MB – so split your file, if necessary
  • Sometimes there are pictures in the files causing trouble – usually, these are the pictures on the title slide and other weird pictures – you can split the file then or delete the pictures
  • We reserve the right to restrict access to Brian in case of excessive use
