Do you have in mind to create a mobile application for translation? What about incorporating Yunmai Chinese OCR SDK to read the text on the picture taken with a mobile device and then display the translation to your users?

Optical character recognition (OCR) extracts text from images and saves you the time of having to retype text. OCR has come a long way since its inception in the early 1990s. The technology today recognizes characters more accurately and recognizes them in a variety of languages. In addition, the best OCR applications can now use an image of a document taken with a cell phone or tablet, read it and make it searchable.

The most significant and time-saving attribute of OCR software is how accurately it extract the text.

By using our Mobile OCR SDK, your application can read the text from jpeg and png images. The accuracy depends on the conditions the picture was taken; if the image is too skewed, too dark or too blurry, the results of the Optical Character Recognition will be impacted.

Then with the text extracted in hand, you can provide the translation with your own dictionaries or use online APIs for translation (Example: Microsoft Bing Translator API).

It can helps the user to translate text from a language he is not familiar with, typically translating a Chinese text into his own language without the difficulty of typing Chinese characters.

Typical use of the Mobile OCR SDK:

Make your capture or load picture process

Make modification on the image like rotation, cropping, enhancement, deskew (or use our own libraries)

Send the image obtained to the OCR Engine by giving the raw image and parameters like the language recognition

Retrieve the text result (and the position of characters recognized in the picture if you need it)
