TextGrabber + Translator
TextGrabber + Translator, developed by ABBYY USA Software House, is a handy translator which can recognize plain text in over 60 languages.
By using your mobile device to scan or take a picture of the text, the app can then translate the language into your native language -- where the results can then be viewed, shared via email and SMS, or posted directly to a social media account or EverNote.
Examples of translatable items include documents, receipts, articles, posters and product ingredients.
This app is compatible with iPhone, the iPod touch, iPad and iPad mini. Requires iOS 5.0 or later.
