Translate drawings in Word

I recently completed a huge project which required working directly in MS Word because of the number of illustrations. If I filtered the text through any CAT tool, the illustrations remained untouched as CAT tools cannot translate drawings in Word.

I have been a translator for two decades now and I think that new technologies somewhat reduce the skills one used to have before when we only could use WordPerfect, Lotus 1-2-3 or MS Word and a bunch of dictionaries for our work. New technologies seem to be powerful enough to get any document translated in minutes with high productivity rates – but experience shows that some files are better be done the old-fashioned way. My idea today is to share my experience if you have to translate drawings in Word.
