I’m translating an academic paper on image registration. The paper is published online as a PDF by E. V. Mjasnikov at Samara State Aerospace University, but I what I wanted was a Word document. I thought I’d give ABBYY PDF Transformer 3.0 a whirl. Fail. It destroys mathematical symbols and formulae. Not the right tool for the job. For example, this equation for the mutual correlation between two images
II /i (ti, t2 ) / 2 (ti -Ti, t2-T2 ).
Of course, that was before I realized that I needed to add Greek to the list of PDF Document Languages:
While that improved the results, it did not satisfy me. The improved-yet-unsatisfactory results follow:
ΣΣ7ι (‘ι,’2)12 (‘ι-τι,h-Т2)
ΣΣ722 (‘ι -τι,’2 -τ2)
If ABBYY’s PDF Transformer 3.0 is not the right tool for the job, what is? Any suggestions?
