In theory sending a PDF works, however, I have found that many files created with LibreOffice and/or pdflatex print differently depending on the printer used. My guess is that it is a font issue because not only is the spacing off, but the output looks like the worst font in world was substituted. Note: Checking embed standard fonts in LO does not solve the problem.

In this case you are sure that formatting and fonts will be correct. This seem to be very important, from my point of view, especially in the case you have to translate to languages like german, polish, french where you have a lot of special letters. To have them all correct it is the only chance I think. best regards gerald

But I have been doing business as a freelance translator for 10 years, using only FREE/OSS, (OmegaT, OpenOffice, etc., on Debian GNU/Linux) without any major issues. Now, suddenly, every time a client sends me a .docx file, I get a complaint when I return their documents that the formatting has changed (tables are different, fonts changed, bullets disappear, or, worse, they can't even open the document, although it opens fine here). It's ruining my business. I'm losing clients, losing money, and I have a family to feed. And I don't know what to do about it. OpenOffice won't write to .docx, and LibreOffice messes them up. I don't know what to do to diagnose these issues, which is why I feel I haven't sufficient information to file a bug. I know nothing of Java (LO is primarily java, yes?), so I certainly can't contribute to any solution. I'm very frustrated and concerned. I absolutely will not use proprietary software, but I am unable to serve my clients' needs with FLOSS at this time. I'm at a loss for what to do here. I suppose this is venting more than anything else, and a desperate plea for help here. For what it's worth, I'm using the LO 188.8.131.52 in the Debian Wheezy repos, on AMD64 architecture.
