I normally do not have any issues exporting (English) files from adobe reader. However, I have this file in Turkish and whenever I try exporting it to word, some characters are replaced by weird symbols. I think I know the problem but don't know how to fix it; before I export the document, adobe asks me what language its in ("Document Language (for Text Recognition)). It gives me a number of languages so I can select, but Turkish is not there....is it possible to somehow add Turkish over there? Or is there some other solution? (Note: I did install Turkish to word.The strange thing is that there are some pages in the exported pdf with no problems. But most pages have the issues I mentioned.)

Hello artusartos

As per the description above, you are not able to convert a Turkish Language PDF into Word as getting symbols in converted Word document, Is that correct?

Please try exporting the PDF file using a different browser like Chrome, or Firefox, or Safari through the URL https://cloud.acrobat.com/exportpdf  and under the Document language choose "Turk" as a language and see if this brings any difference.

If the issue still persists, is it possible to share the PDF file with us so that we can try it at our end? Please use Adobe Send to share the file with us via private message. https://cloud.acrobat.com/send

Let us know how it goes and share your findings.

Regards,

Anand Sri.
