I make translation of science papers now, and it would be SUPER COMFORTABLE if I can open an article in the built-in PDF viewer, look and translate it into another language.

I hope my request is understandable, English is not my native language.

  • you can use the user commands menu i.e. define a command that view static .pdf file.

I don't know about such a feature in Texmaker, but, you can open the page of the original file you are translating at the moment just below where you are writing using the pdfpages package like this:


Here, I am writing my translation ..

and just below it, the corresponding page(s) in the original file.
