    Chinese Reading problem

    SherazAhmed.cprods2010

      Hi,

       

      I am trying to read the pdf file that have chinese characters. I am using iText. But when I read them, it will give me hex string for those characters. I had tried too much variations to retrieve those chinese characters by applying different encodings, and other decoding ways but all in vain. Can any one help me out in this problem. Because this is my assignment to solve this problem. Can anyone help?

       

      One more thing the pdf may be created through Acrobat Writer. Because when I write the chinese characters to write in PDF using iText. Then I do not put them in hex format inside PDF. Thats why those characters are easily taken out at reading. But from that pdf I am not able to get those Chinese characters. It is giving me hex string.

      Regards,
