Tagged PDF /Lang tag

Post by davestevens » Mon Jun 12, 2017 4:00 pm

Hi again,

We have some PDFs, in which some objects are tagged with the /Lang tag, specifying the language of passages of text in the PDF. Is it possible to detect these tags using the Viewer SDK?

Many thanks.

Hello davestevens,

Can you please provide one such sample document with these tags so that we can take a look?

Regards,
Stefan

Sure Stefan, I have attached an example. This PDF contains two languages; Dutch and French. The PDF author has tagged the French text with the French language tag and the Dutch text with the Dutch language tag.

Hello davestevens,

Thanks for the sample file. I've had a chat with one of our lead devs - and he says that we do not currently support such tags, but it's one of our highest priority tasks currently - so support will be added as quickly as possible!
You've posted in the Viewer SDK section of our forums, so please do be aware that the Viewer SDKs are now no longer developed, and will not get any future improvements, so you will need to consider moving to it's successor - the Editor SDK:

Regards,
Stefan
