Character-Set Detection and Conversion

When reading in a document for indexing, the Verity engine commonly has no prior knowledge of what character encoding the document uses. In those cases, the Verity auto-detection process analyzes the incoming document data to determine its character set.

After character-set detection, the engine converts the document’s text, if necessary, to the character set required by the current locale. K2 then automatically converts between the character set of that indexed information and the character set used by a Verity application accessing it.

Verity’s character-set conversion capability can convert between all common character sets in dozens of languages.

For more information on internationalization and localization of Verity applications, see the Verity Locale Configuration Guide.
