HOHHOT - Inner Mongolia University in North China has developed a new system to convert Mongolian paper documents into editable and digital versions, the university said Tuesday.
Users can log into the official website of the system, named oyun, which will recognize various Mongolian fonts and transfer them into Word files and other editable digital versions.
Inner Mongolia is home to a large number of books and newspapers in the Mongolian language, which are valuable for the study of Mongolian history and culture.
"Digital archiving is a good way to preserve them, but it requires a large amount of manpower and time to do the work," said Feilong, associate professor with the university"s computer science college.
"Now it only takes 40 to 50 seconds to transfer a 100-page Mongolian book into a digital version after scanning through the system," he said.
