Interactive table - is that possible?

Hi everybody!

 

I am creating interactive PDFs with InDesign, works perfect and everything is fine. But...

Is there a way to make a table interactive? So that every field of a table is turned into an interactive text field? That would be very helpful...

 

The background: I create flyer and brochures with many tables about technical data (for example of motors) in english and I need to give them to a third person translating it to italian. Getting the finished translation, I copy it to InDesign to make the final document. For making this translation process easier, I turn all text fields into interactive fields, so that the italian translation can be done directly in the exported interactive PDF. But there area lot of tables. Turning a table into interactive, Indesign creates one big interactive field and doesn`t recognize each field of the table. 

 

For additional information: The person who translates for us is not working in our company and does not have InDesign. Just for the case someone was going to ask this 🙂 

 

I am thankful for every help and all ideas!
