Multilingual OCR question...

Hello Everyone - hoping someone can advise on this. I’m relatively new to Devonthink and finding it an excellent tool as I work on PhD in Biblical studies - which leads to my question. I am scanning documents containing a mixture of Greek and English text and can’t get OCR to recognise the Greek component of the text. I have to go and enter it manually, which is a pain!
I’ve tried setting primary language to Greek in OCR preferences, but this does not work at all - no OCR output whatsoever!
Any suggestions?

I think Greek should be working, but I’m not sure if you’re scanning modern or classical Greek. The latter may not work. Maybe you could check the IRIS site for specifics.

In general it is advisable to use the most complex (from a typographical point of view) as your primary language.
