Hi,
I am looking for a text search tool that can handle and display the diacritic characters used in Latvian.
I use normally Examine, but it can not handle these charachters.
Any suggestions?

Best regards,
Cecilia

It recognizes Polish diacritics without problems, so it should handle Latvian diacritics.

searches for words/phrases within various document types. No problems with diacritics- but, of course, I have Latvian enabled on my computer.

Thank you! Feb 21, 2008

Tried InfoRapid first as it did not need indexing - did not work (handle diacritics), probably due to the fact that I do not have Latvian enabled (how do you do that?).
Will try out Copernic later.

Best regards,
Cecilia

PS. I am trying to sort out this problem for a collegue who translates from Latvian, that's why it might sound as I don't know what I am talking about. DS.

Or try this. There must be versions other than Russian. Tip: To copy and paste characters with diacritics correctly, you may need to enable more codepages or change the system locale to the target language or that which supports the required codepage, such as Baltic. Just adding a keyboard layout may not do it. Choose Language & Regional Settings, More Options (names may vary) in Control Panel. There may be other issues, such as with the format of files you search in.

Control panel- Regional and Language Options- Advanced.

Choose Latvian in the upper dropdown menu and, amopng others, check "28594 (ISO 8859-4 Baltics)" in the lower window.

HTH,
