Users can now scan and automatically translate paper documents into more than 60 languages
Scanning solutions provider Scannx, Inc. today debuted its cutting-edge new Scan to Translate service, which enables users to instantly translate printed documents into another language without having to manually retype the text into a separate document or online conversion tool.
Organisations such as libraries, schools and government agencies can provide the functionality to the general public through Scannx’s self-service book and document ScanCenter devices, which allow users to scan printed documents. Thanks to the integration of Scannx’s popular, easy-to-use document scanning and delivery software, Microsoft Translator, which supports 65 languages, and Google Translate, which offers translation capabilities for 103, scanned documents can now be translated in just seconds, and then emailed or saved to cloud-based destinations such as Dropbox or Google Drive.
“Educational, government and commercial organizations can use this translation service to more efficiently and cost-effectively bridge communication gaps with the communities they serve,” said Murray L. Dennis, CEO of Scannx. “Preliminary feedback from law firms indicate they can save between 60-80 percent of the time they spend on data input.
“Local governments can provide written information in any language that’s needed. Lawyers can more easily review translated documents with non-English speaking clients, ensuring clients are properly advised of their rights and responsibilities. Teachers can provide school and student information in both English and a parent’s native language. Students can use the service to improve their understanding of class material as they work to master a new language.”
Scannx’s new tool also provides service organisations with usage statistics that can help them better understand language requirements in their communities—for example, how many pages were translated from one language to another. In addition, the software works with major coin, bill and credit card payment systems, enabling cost recovery options for organisations that provide critical digital document amenities for their constituents.
