I'm not sure if such a thing exists but here's what I'm doing --

Online research into old documents that are in foreign language that I want to cut and paste into an online translator but since its an image I currently am retyping everything myself which is time-consuming and maybe not 100 percent accurate on my part.

Anybody know / have any ideas about a shortcut - some software or something that can help me out???

Here's some info about the stored images how they are composed. I guess its just an image file basically??

Thanks for any tips you might have. Like I said, maybe there is nothing but you never know.

You'll need an OCR (Optical Character Recognition) program that works accurately with German, and handles formatting well. I don't have experience to make a recommendation there, but others may have done similar and be able to recommend something suitable.

Thanks a lot for the suggestion. I've been "off" a while but back now and have at least a hint what to do.
