Nokia Mobile App Shoot-to-Translate: Translation From Clicked Image Text

7 April 2008 By Shashank

Last week Nokia showcased quite innovative cameraphone translator mobile application named Shoot-to-Translate which can translate Chinese to English from a photo taken with the mobile phone. The application if released will be much useful for frequent travellers as they will be able to translate languages on the fly just by taking pictures.

The released text reads: “Shoot to Translate: a demonstration using software that translates written characters into another language; the original text is captured with the camera on the Nokia multimedia computer and translation happens in real time.”

Not much details have been revealed just yet about language support and its release date.

Seems that there are plenty of choices in this domain. I am using Trippo and it’s amazingly accurate. You can download it for example from Works with almost any phone and includes text2voice feature. I think they are the most advanced in the world at the moment!
