Language support

Document AI API's text recognition feature (OCR) is able to detect text from a wide variety of languages and can detect multiple languages within a single document.

Languages detected by the Document AI API are returned in the Document object in the detectedLanguages field as a BCP-47 identifier.

For more information about OCR Language support, refer to the Cloud Vision OCR Language Support documentation.

See the tables below or the full Processor List for details.
