The file I translated was a large file and don’t know if that was the problem. There were hundreds of names on a gray background which translated just fine except there were multiple text boxes which were difficult to delete to edit the text. And there was also a white background around the text. Other than that it was flawless.
– Joel Klaassen, ID2Q user
