I live in a multilingual country. There is high chances the customer will process a document of different language. I know that ABBYY OCR can recognize the targeted languages. However, can it return the language being recognized along with the extracted text? as a second variable other than the extracted text or a totally different function. Thanks.

Oh, sorry. I use ABBYY OCR SDK for windows phone.this is the function to set the language: ProcessingSettings settings = new ProcessingSettings(); settings.SetLanguage("English,ChineseTaiwan, Japanese"); settings.OutputFormat = OutputFormat.txt; But can I get the language while downloading the result?

You can perform export to XML and find there the information about language for each text fragment. For example:

-<formatting lang="EnglishUnitedStates">
-<formatting lang="FrenchStandard">
