Editors’ Notes

Capturing printed words and magically morphing them into easy-to-edit digital text is TextGrabber’s bread and butter. But we love it nearly as much for the sci-fi cool factor of being able to instantly translate Italian restaurant menus, French fashion magazines, and Japanese graphic novels into our native language.

One of ABBY’s best products

While I have had my gripes about ABBYY’s price and what I believe is a clear loss in the quality of the apps (ie it’s still hard to find better desktop software!), I nonetheless have to say this app is excellent. I am a PhD candidate in the humanities, and had to pass four research languages in order to complete the program. That meant I had to learn to translate quickly, and recognize common phrases in each language. If one is looking for the parsing or definition of a word then a lexicon is best, but if one needs to actually translate and work through sentence structure, then this is one of the most helpful apps I’ve found. I continue to use it for quick translation or to check my own rendering.

*i do echo previous comments regarding whether the app utilizes the hardware of the latest iPhone effectively (it doesn’t); the iPhones have the best cameras on the market, and yet the ABBYY apps seem to struggle to take decent pictures. Sadly, it’s often easier and more accurate to take a picture with the native camera app and then import into the suite of ABBYY apps. (I have received multiple responses to this issue telling me I’m doing it wrong, but I have an actual lighting setup and a device that holds the phone over the page...I’m sure I will get corrected again 🙄 but there is some difference - that said ABBYY is still the best available).

Finally

So many scanner apps promise test digitalization or OCR, yet when it comes to it, a simple extracting of a telephone number from the bank transaction (charge description) becomes more work and steps than one would care to perform or remember. This app takes care of that and even remembers the results, without the need to bother with saving files.
Ability to specify this app as a target for sharing in the helper menu is a key feature, not to minimize how well the app is made to handle all various OCR situations and text translation to/from 100 languages, even language detection, which is major, when you really need it, like to translate a message in a global chat.
Best app.

Thanks a lot! We're glad that you like the app. Have a nice day :) Regards,
