The difference between "Japanese" and "Japanese (modern)"


What is the difference between "Japanese" and "Japanese (modern)" languages?


For Japanese documents, "Japanese" or "Japanese (modern)" can be selected as the recognition language.

  • Japanese: Includes Japanese Hiragana, Katakana, and Kanji (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th level). Also, a dictionary is used to select character candidates. When the Japanese language is selected (and when it is necessary to recognize the English alphabet at the same time), English must also be set as the recognition language too.
  • Japanese (modern): Includes Japanese hiragana, katakana, kanji (common kanji = part of the first and second levels) and English and Greek characters α, β, θ, π. At the time of recognition, the dictionary is not used. In general, if the recognition language is specified as "Japanese (modern)", the recognition quality of office documents such as invoices (invoices) tends to improve, so it is recommended to use "Japanese (modern)".
