I like your A-PDF Preview and Rename, but I only have English in the OCR dropdown-list. How can I add others (for me, French and Italian) to use in your program?


A-PDF Preview and Rename (free download here) is improved with OCR functionality.

A-PDF also provides you multiple language files for OCR now: English, French, German, Italian, Dutch, Spanish, Portuguese and Basque.
