# Mixed language OCR

I'm solving a table data recognition task

And the huge problem is the recognition of mixed language pictures.

I'm using tesseract for OCR, but it fails to recognize both languages simultaneously.

Here are the examples of output:

If i use 'eng+rus' as lang option it fails to recognize english So my question is: Is there a way to recognize both languages simultaneously? So the output would look like: Холодильник KitchenAid KCFMA 60150R

According to https://tesseract-ocr.github.io/tessdoc/Command-Line-Usage.html#simplest-invocation-to-ocr-an-image you are doing the correct thing by trying eng+rus. I.e. that is the answer to the question.
You could also try rus+eng (though according to those docs that only affects the time taken?).
