Default Letters gets changed when copied from PDF Document

Hi,

I got a solution for this. It seems my PC doesn't have "Times New Roman Dual
Greek" font. I need to install it

Thanks very Much

If you like you could send me a copy of the pdf, via the link on my web
site, with confirmation of where the problem occurs and I'll try some
alternatives.

Just a thought - try setting the Windows language to Greek whilst
converting.

Hi,

First, Thanks very much for all your replies

Abbyy Finereader also does the same replacement of characters as I
mentioned earlier. Any other ideas.

Also, I couldn't find any OCR Software for Greek Language. Do you
know any one of them

Thanks

Abbyy Finereader works reasonably well and they now have a separate
module available dedicated to reading PDF files. See if the demo
works on your file. http://www.abbyy.com/pdftransformer/

Try edit paste special rather than a simple paste, but my guess
is that you
may not get any further with this. PDF is essentially a graphics
format and
the conversion of graphics formats back to text is somewhat hit &
miss and unlike OCR software where at least you can train the
software to use particular characters in some circumstances, here
you don't have that option.

How are you copying? Word has no facility to translate anything
to
or from PDF.

Hi,

I have a PDF document that has letters in Greek

When try to copy it to Word Document(Microsoft Office Word
2003), some letters are getting replaced by other ones.(Font:
TimesNewRoman)

Here is Two of them:

(1) "U+03AC: Greek small Letter Alpha With Tonos" of PDF is
getting replaced as "U+00DC: Latin Capital Letter U With
Diaeresis" in Word

(2) "U+0394: Greek Capital Letter Delta" of PDF is getting
replaced
as "U+00C4: Latin Capital Letter A With Diaeresis" in Word


Thanks

TNR Unicode does contain the Basic Greek character subset, which should
include most of the needed glyphs (including all the ones you mention).
