TranslateIT for Windows Phone 7 Features OCR and Translation With Speech

Advertisement

Created as part of the killer-apps competition, TranslateIT is a Windows Phone 7 application that can be used for translating text from several languages into others.

The application can work in different ways: OCR and Text. We all know about text to text translation but OCR method is interesting. It’s actually similar to Google Goggle’s way of translating text from images by decoding text in them, recognizing and translating. TranslateIT is able to read text from images taken with the camera, decode the text and translate it to another language. It also has the option to speak out the translation as part of the text to speech engine. We’re curious about how good the OCR implementation is or how it will be improved in the future but till then we salute the initiative!
