Hello teachers,
Are both correct? If so, what's the difference?
1. He doesn't usually translate documents on paper.
2. He doesn't usually translate documents onto paper.

Thanks in advance.

    1. He doesn't usually translate documents on paper = if you give him a paper document, he probably won't translate it.
    2. He doesn't usually translate documents onto paper = if you give him a document, he probably won't give you a paper translation.
