You can do something like this to tell you are processing documents in English and German:

IDocumentProcessingParams docProcessingParams = engine.CreateDocumentProcessingParams();
IRecognizerParams recognizerParams = docProcessingParams.getPageProcessingParams().getRecognizerParams();
ILanguageDatabase languageDatabase = engine.CreateLanguageDatabase();
ITextLanguage textLanguage = languageDatabase.CreateCompoundTextLanguage("English,German");

Also you can call the SetPredefinedTextLanguage method with a parameter which contains several language names separated with commas, for example "English,German". The program will automatically select the language of the document from the specified set. But please note that in general the recognition quality is better when less languages are specified.
