Hi all,

I came across an annoying bug in Abbyy PDF Transformer, and I wonder if anyone else encountered it.

I want to OCR a layered PDF with Swedish text. In Abbyy, I select "Remove all formatting", and convert it to DOC.

When opening the resulting DOC file in Word, everything looks fine. I'm able to translate this with Trados TWB using the Word interface. Even with "show hidden characters", nothing unusual is noticed.

BUT if I choose to open it with TagEditor instead, it reveals that the file has segment breaks (that were previously invisible) between all Swedish characters (å,ä,ö).

For instance "räksmörgås" is displayed in TE as räksmörgås

My guess is that it must be a problem with the character encoding, assigning the wrong code page to the output file.

But there is no setting for me to assign the character coding, neither in PDF Transformer 1.0 or 2.0.

I don't want any advice about switching to another OCR program. I have access to most of the other programs on the market, including FineReader. But I'd like to know if there is a solution to this bug?

Thanks a lot for your input!

/J

Hello,

I remember that I have encountered the same problem, and I Just opened the word file and used sellect all to sellect all the file then I pasted it into a new word file. Then I imported this new one to tageditor, and every thing works well.


Regards,
Ahmed Maher
