AR Translator for iPhone and iPad instantly recognizes and translates text from pictures or camera video stream. The app is a useful tool for those who work with foreign language documents, contracts, manuals and books. Besides, it facilitates foreign travels by translating airport signs, menus, road signs and food labels in a fraction of a second.
Inverse Metric LLC software company has announced the release of a new app for instant translation in Augmented Reality mode. AR Translator uses a proprietary technology of optical character recognition (OCR) based on AI algorithms, and therefore can recognize text without any connection to external servers. The app supports over 100 languages.
The competitive advantage of AR Translator lies in its value as a time-saver. There is no more need to select the source text and specify its language - the app does it automatically and instantly when processing the camera video stream. This feature facilitates interaction with a multi-language environment, as well as dealing with documents in several foreign languages.
If the user needs to translate a photographed text, the app switches to Augmented Reality mode and neatly replaces the source phrase with a similarly styled translation. Thus the user can quickly digitize and translate contracts, invoices, letters and other documents in foreign languages.
In addition to the aforesaid, AR Translator can be used for recognition of telephone numbers, emails and web addresses that are printed on paper (business cards, magazines, letters, etc.). The numbers and addresses are instantly presented on the device screen as a clickable text. Instead of manual input, the user can just tap the number to dial it, or a URL link to open it in a browser.
