The smarter PDF solution

Convert, edit, share, and collaborate on PDFs and scans in the digital workplace.

Compare documents in different formats

FineReader Corporate ONLY

Quickly and reliably identify differences between two versions of a document across different formats, including scans. Rest assured that you can, in a fraction of the time, identify unauthorized changes, check if edits were implemented as agreed, or verify that the document has not been changed at all.

Compare documents quickly, reliably and effortlessly

Avoid the long and tiresome process of comparing text in two documents line by line. FineReader PDF detects the differences between two versions of a document within seconds. It accurately identifies relevant changes to the text without additional conversion steps, even if the versions of the document are in different formats such as Microsoft Office files, digital PDFs, scanned PDFs, or even scans and image files.

Focus on the most important differences

FineReader will only display the differences that affect the meaning of the document and disregard insignificant differences like formatting or line breaks. This lets you review documents 5 to 20 times faster*, so you can focus on what is most important, simplify your work, and reduce the chances of missing something that matters. You can even manually disregard differences that are not significant for your task, and they will no longer appear in the list of comparison results.

*In comparison to other PDF solutions, when comparing document copies in DOC(X) and digital PDF formats, according to ABBYY’s internal tests.

Export and share the comparison results

Tailor comparison results to your needs. When someone should approve or edit the changes, export to Microsoft Word in track-changes mode. Or use a PDF with the differences marked up as comments to share and discuss with others. You can even save a list of the differences themselves in a Microsoft Word table in order to have a brief overview for your records, reports, or discussions.

Compare multilingual documents

FineReader supports text comparison in 37 languages, including documents written in multiple languages. The software can also automatically detect a document’s language.
