Hi,I have received certain documents in french and I want to make certain that what I am reading is correct. Is there a certain software, or an obvious way of translating in my microsoft office 7 the letter or document into english as it stands, as when you copy and paste any of the aforesaid mentioned it will refuse to paste. Thank you.

Scanners scan documents as pictures. If you want to read the document in a word processor you'll have to run it through OCR (optical character recognition) software. Loading a picture into Word *will* give you gibberish - Word isn't a picture editor.

you will need to convert it using OCR software.
