Hello guys,
I am totally new here and to the rapidminer!!
I have an assignment to get done so there is not much time for me to explore rapid miner. I will set my question here and I hope I will find the answer. It might be trivial.I apologise for that..

I have several pdf files. I want to tokenize them, i.e to see the multiple appearances of each word and how many times each word appears..
For example let's assume that in a pdf there is the word "process"..I want to see how many times this word appears. And that is what I want to do for all the words in the pdf file. Is tokenization what I need to do? If yes, how do I do it? If not what do you propose?
Thank you in advance!

    Yes, it is. Just load the data with Read Documents from Files, connect it to Process Documents, inside Process Documents add the Tokenize operator, and finally connect the output ports of the Process Documents operator to the process output.

    To get the aforementioned operators, you have to install the Text Processing extension.

    Best, Marius

    Hi,

    these are very important concepts which are rather easy to understand, but hard to explain here in text form. I would like to forward you to our video tutorials on our website; there is one complete section about text processing.

    You'll find the link to the tutorials in the post linked in my signature.

    Happy Mining!
