I am trying to develop a application that have the following features

1> It will be able to display contents of a doc and pdf file that will contain text in Bengali language.The format of the source file must be maintained while displaying the text.

2> There will be a search option where the user will input a search text in bengali language and the application will move the cursor to the position of the first occurrence of the search text.

My application will run on windows xp and on wards.

Please help me.

The problem is not the Bengali language and the searching (that can be handled by Unicode builds) but the reading of doc and pdf files and showing their formatted content. Such an application would be a combined Word / PDF viewer.

But there is an existing application that can do that (formatting will be sometimes wrong): LibreOffice/OpenOffice.

LibreOffice can. With OpenOffice there is a PDF import extension available.
