In addition to the built-in languages and language groups, you

(from languages supported by FineReader) and use it for
You may want to create a new language if you need:
To connect a user dictionary.
For example, you need to recognize an English text containing
many abbreviations. You may create an abbreviation
dictionary, create a new language and connect the dictionary to the
language. Then you may make up a new language group consisting
of the English language (with the system dictionary) and your new
language (with the abbreviations dictionary) and use this language
group to recognize your texts.
To recognize documents of certain special types, for example:
supermarket product lists where there are only product codes.
Such codes usually contain only numbers and probably several
letters. You may then create a new language consisting of the
necessary characters only and use it for recognizing these
documents set in capitals only. You may increase the
recognition quality if you create a language in which all lowercase
letters are prohibited.
You should create a language group if you use a particular
language combination often.
To create a new language or a language group open the
dialog (Tools menu, Language Editor item).
