Country and language settings

ABBYY FlexiCapture for Invoices can process invoices originating from a number of different countries and supports a wide range of languages.

All supported countries are enabled by default in the Document Definition. However, you should select only the countries from which you expect to receive invoices.

Ensuring that the right country is selected is important because:

  • Keywords specific to invoices from that country become available to the program.
  • Recognition quality will be significantly better because the right language will be used.
  • The program will know which number and currency formats to expect.

The country of the invoice is used to determine the currency, keywords, additional fields, and the formats of fields such as IBAN and VATID.

The country of the invoice also determines the language set. Only enable languages that will be used during recognition. Extra languages interfere with processing and decrease performance.

Thus, by selecting countries you determine which invoices the program can process.
