New York, NY (PRWEB) December 18, 2012
Having a dictionary app or an online translator is all good and well for languages that can be typed in your browser, but what happens when faced with a road sign in Greek, a drinks menu in Russian or a food wrapper in Ukrainian? A dictionary is not going to be much help there – this is where Ling comes in. This simple app allows the user to take a photo of any text and then submit it for a free, quick translation.
Ling combines a powerful Optical Character Recognition solution with an on-line translation tool allowing your iPhone to translate the image data it receives from its camera into recognizable text in 32 languages and provides real-time translation of the resulting text.
The accuracy of Ling improves with the quality of the image used in the OCR and translation process. Making sure to get a clear image of the text, isolating it using the in-app crop function so as to focus on only what needs to be translated would make Ling a powerful and reliable companion.
