it depends.

Hi Taoufik,

Some PDFs contain real Arabic text behind the image they present, some are garbled nonsense, and some are an image without text.

This depends primarily on how the PDF is made.

In my experience the only PDFs that produce extract-friendly Arabic text are those created with the Middle East version of Adobe Acrobat (or one of the other Adobe ME tools like InDesign).

I hope this helps on your way to an answer...

How to convert PDF in Arabic to Word Arabic Jan 12, 2010

Hi

The expensive way is to purchase IRIS 11 Middle-East version. It will recognize PDF and many image formats. But is still poor in recognition.

The FREE way is to save your PDF document as text in Acrobat Reader (version 9 does it). Then open it with notepad, wordpad, or Word. MS-Word brings up the convert to Arabic dialog before opening the file. It is poor and plain, but works good for simple texts of any file size.

Regards
Akbar from Iran
