Affinda’s ID Document Extractor is capable of handling different date and number formats that exist across regions.
Dates will often be represented differently depending on the region. The most common date format difference is whether the month appears before or after days in the entire date. For example, dates in the United States are often presented as MM/DD/YY, whereas in the United Kingdom they are often presented as DD/MM/YY.
Additionally in passports, date formats may include the month denoted in English and the country’s primary or secondary language.
Affinda recognises all the common ways to represent dates in different documents and then returns them in the standard ISO date format for further processing.
