Well, it seems I can scan the text using the OCR function and save it as unicode text, which will open with the MS notebook. Then I can copy same into the translator, thence copy the translation into word. But that seems more complicated than it needs to be. I'm certain there must be a way to scan the entire text into a word processing program like Word, then copy to the online translator program.
Jees. I have a headache. I'm trying to translate text in French
