Support of DIN SPEC 91379 using .NET

Hi there,

Does Aspose.Words conform to DIN SPEC 91379?

Thanks in advance?


Unfortunately, your question is not clear enough therefore we request you to please elaborate your inquiry further. Also, please supply input/output documents and your current code for testing. This will help us to understand your scenario, and we will be in a better position to address your concerns accordingly.


You can find the specification here: https://www.beuth.de/de/technische-regel/din-spec-91379/301228458 and https://www.en-standard.eu/din-spec-91379-zeichen-in-unicode-fur-die-elektronische-verarbeitung-von-namen-und-den-datenaustausch-in-europa-mit-digitalem-anhang/
Its English title is “Characters in Unicode for the electronic processing of names and data exchange in Europe”. It describes a subset of Unicode code points which need to be supported by software used by governmental authorities.


Please note that Aspose.Words mimics the behavior of MS Word. It supports multilingual and Unicode characters. We suggest you please read the product overview from here:

It would be great if you please share complete detail of your requirement along with your test case. We will then provide you more information about your query.


Thanks for your answer. Could you please point me to the exact location in your documentation where Unicode or UTF-8 is mentioned. I fail to find it.

We don’t have any test cases yet. We are checking pre-conditions before investing time to write some tests.


Unfortunately, there is no specific documentation about text encoding. Please share the complete detail of your requirement along with input and expected output documents. We will then address your concerns accordingly along with code example.

You can download the specification for free from the above URL. As already stated before it contains a set of Unicode code points which needs to be supported. I have also attached a file containing these code points.
