Windows 7 translation

Hey, I have a problem with Win 7 automatically translating text. For instance, I have in a PDF Greek letters and when I copy those letters from the PDF to say word or notepad it appears as Englsih letters. Does anyone know how to disable this?

When you copy Greek text from a non-PDF source, does the translation occur? If not, we can narrow the search.

So, which is it?

Copy text from a PDF and paste into non-PDF converts text.

What happens when you copy Greek text from a Word doc and paste it into a text file? Does the conversion occur?

I completely understand what you are saying.

As a test, please copy some Greek letters from a diiferent kind of file and paste it into Word or notepad. Does the same thing happen?

If not, this is an Adobe issue, not strictly a Windows issue.

Well, I doubt its an adobe problem and is more likey a Windows problem, but I will confirm this by performing your test when I can.

The test is valid. No matter the result, it provides definition to the condition and greatly narrows the scope of research.
