My German is not quite up to that level, technical writings can be quite tricky at times. I recently fooled around with Google Translate (free app) to translate some German folk songs to English though and it wasn't too bad. Pretty short learning curve too. Might be worth looking at.

You need first use an OCR program to convert the image file to text: https://www.onlineocr.net
Then run it through a translator like Google Translate: https://translate.google.com
Thanks for the tip I have a macbook at home! I'm gone try the work computer. The problem is that the Germans speak backways. they speaks a little bit like yoda in starwars. They can start with last word. And google translate is based on English grammar

It may help if you break it up in sections, translate one paragraph or sentence at a time. Also, If you try to OCR large sections it can sometimes change the formatting.

If you download the google translate app on your phone there is no need to OCR the document - it's augmented reality/on the fly translation is spookey hi tech stuff. Just point the phone camera a the page and it automatically changes the words.
