I'm trying to extract text from a PDF with right to left language, and the text is get is mirrored. This happens in Nitro Reader 2 and Adobe Reader.

How can I do it so that the text extracted will be in the right order?

Since you are using Windows, you can use Notepad++ to convert from RTF to LTF.

This option can be found under: View > Text Direction LTR.

left to right

You may also need to change the encoding as well.

Update:

This only changes the view of the text, not the format of the text itself.
