ABBYY adds Arabic interface to PDF handling software
ABBYY's PDF Transformer now has an Arabic interface.

Document and linguistic technology specialist ABBYY has released an Arabic language user interface for its PDF Transformer tool.

PDF Transformer allows user to edit or comment on a PDF document, add password protection, create, read and share PDFs or convert them into common document formats. The new Arabic interface is intended to help the company to capture a wider audience as it expands in the Middle East.

The new software combines an intuitive interface and collaboration tools with ABBYY's Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology and Adobe PDF Library technology to ensure maximum compatibility.

The product delivers three major usability improvements, which make processing of PDF files even more convenient and accessible. They include Arabic User Interface with full support and functionality for Arabic language documents; accurate conversion of PDFs in 189 languages including Arabic to popular formats such as Microsoft Word, Excel, TXT, HTML, e-books, and more, while accurately preserving the original layout; and the ability to work with any type of PDFs including image-only or scanned documents thanks to the combination of ABBYY's OCR technology and the Adobe PDF Library.

"We realized one of the key things to capture the local audience was actually being able to ‘speak the same language'. We believe that users in the Middle East region will appreciate the new Arabic interface as well as enhanced features to work with Arabic documents and enjoy their experience," said Marina Silushina, marketing manager, Middle East and Africa, ABBYY 3A.

ABBYY PDF Transformer+ Arabic is available for free of charge for existing users as an in-application update.
