compareDocs SDK for Developers
compareDocs SDK provides developers access to the unique document comparison and markup capabilities of compareDocs through .NET.
This is ideal for Windows Server-based applications either for in-house development or for embedding in mass-market software applications.
compareDocs SDK will compare documents electronically and report reliably on the differences in text in the documents, including automatically marking up the documents to show insertions, deletions, changes and moves of text within a document.
Multiple formats such as Microsoft Word, PDF can be compared in native format. compareDocs SDK also intelligently detects changes at a word or character level, as well as changes in list numbers, tables, headers and footers, footnotes, endnotes, field codes, text boxes, and equations.
compareDocs SDK offers a rich and flexible API (Application Programming Interface), which offers flexibility to integrating applications written is a variety of programming languages. The compareDocs SDK provides these unique features:
- Compare MS Word, RTF, PDF natively
- Compare at word or character level
- Output marked up changes
- Embed in mass-market software applications
- Access with .NET
compareDocs SDK is the base module and is required for all other modules. It enables the comparing of Word and PDF files.
This unique product offers two separate modules to satisfy individual requirements for comparing documents programmatically.
compareDocs SDK PDF Module
compareDocs for PDF documents, comparing and highlighting differences in documents, controlled from a programmer's SDK.
compareDocs SDK Word
compareDocs for Word documents, comparing and showing changes with Track Change or as a Redline comparison.
compareDocs SDK allows developers to output fully marked up documents showing document differences. Or, they can access the individual metadata of the changes in a document, which can be used in one’s own software applications.
compareDocs can produce fully marked up documents or compare raw text.
compareDocs SDK has a powerful document comparison engine with two separate comparison environments to support different document types and is the only document comparison technology capable of comparing all of these in their native formats without conversion to another format.
This produces a faster and more accurate comparison result. It also means there is less chance of document corruption.

compareDocs is a complete success
Debbie Johnson, System Administrator at Gentry, Locke, Rakes & Moore, shares the unexpected success her firm had using compareDocs to find changes between versions.
Press Release30 January, 2017
Reviewing documents and spreadsheets is time-consuming and prone to error. compareDocs can instantly identify changes between different versions. See text, image, and formatting changes displayed in an interactive report with just a few clicks. Small changes in a document can have a big impact.
Meet industry regulations with compareDocs, a reliable tool for tracking, discovering, and reporting on changes to documents. Since a single change to a value or formula in a spreadsheet can have a ripple effect on all kinds of data, users need to be able to see every change no matter how minor. compareDocs gives Financial Services users accurate and reliable change management.
Doing a manual side-by-side comparison won’t give you the same accuracy or peace of mind.
Government departments, whether state, federal or local, use compareDocs to meet compliance requirements and standards. compareDocs is a reliable tool for tracking, auditing and reporting changes to critical documents. Processes around applications, licensing, and information requests can become faster and more efficient.
Comparing documents is a routine task for legal professionals since they often share contracts, drafts and other legal documents with opposing counsel and third parties. compareDocs ensures that changes between document versions are clearly and instantly identified. Missing a small but significant change in a document could mean the difference between winning or losing a case.
Before submitting documents as part of a clinical trial, Life Science companies need to review them.
compareDocs streamlines the review process so that reviewers and researchers who collaborated on the submission documents can compare different versions for changes. Manually comparing and contrasting documents is a time-consuming process that is prone to error. compareDocs gives Life Science companies a solution that is fast, accurate and efficient. Moreover, they can be 100% confident in the results.
Resources and Energy
Collaborating on project documents and applications requires a robust and reliable document review process.
compareDocs controls and manages this process. compareDocs integrates with the document management systems resource companies use to deliver unparalleled levels of efficiency when it comes to document comparison.
cleanDocs, compareDocs, contentCrawler, pdfDocs and compareDocs cloud are 100% compatible with Microsoft Office 2016 and Windows 10.
“Users would simply not use the application if it was too hard or too complicated. We saved about 15-30 minutes per day. With 100-150 using compareDocs daily, that’s a significant savings.”
Director of Information Technology,
“The alternative to compareDocs is to visually check the two documents on two monitors, or print them off and compare them side-by-side. Neither option is ideal. Making a mistake or failing to capture the slightest change in an employment contract could have huge implications.”
EMEA HR Program Manager,
“We really liked compareDocs ease-of-use. We especially liked how we could right-click on documents in iManage, compare the documents and email the results. It was easy and fast.”
