Extracts and compares text from artwork files

  • Supports all languages, also Arabic and Hebrew
  • Executes the comparison in seconds
  • Supports PDF, Adobe Illustrator, Word, Excel and other file formats

The brilliance of Text Compare is that it analyzes all kinds of text – which means that differences in font, size, disposition, style or semblance will never compromise the comparison of your artwork. By breaking down selected areas, or entire documents, word by word and character by character, Text Compare guarantees a foolproof comparison.

Its revolutionary Language‐Independent feature enables the comparison of texts written in pictorial languages (such as Chinese) or in right-to-left languages (such as Arabic or Hebrew). The application can also execute the comparison of texts that contain multiple languages on the same page. Supported formats are PDF, Word, Excel, Adobe Illustrator, XML and text files.
The innovative Adobe Annotations Compare feature detects deviations between annotations (such as “Sticky Notes”) and the main text. It likewise verifies that the changes to the original text suggested in the annotations are correctly inserted in the revised version of the document. Text Compare guarantees a 100% deviations hit rate, provided that the PDF file contains live text (Unicode). Any deviation is displayed with respect to the deviation category, such as changed, added or removed text. Moreover, the Comparison Settings feature allows the user to decide at each comparison what properties to take into consideration, for example: text attributes (bold, italic and bold italic), font and size, minimum text size and text color.
The Result page provides a complete list of all deviations found. In the Deviation view the user can easily get an overview and navigate between them. It is also possible to read barcode or braille values and technical data.
