Very accurate scan & text translator. Transcribes things easily and quite accurately. Has cropping capabilities and the interface is beautiful. A well-designed app and very useful. I use it for translating Japanese text in photobooks to English. If it can be synced to all your devices under your Google login that would make it perfect. Oh, and if there was a buy for a lifetime purchase for using the app. Looking into it. I think they do have that option as well.

Great app, glitch free, simple to use, does what it says on the tin. I use the subscription version daily. I also use Google translate app for its instant floating text translation but only for a very quick very few lines of text,otherwise its limited. It's a feature which I wish this app would also incorporate. But for stabilty and longer text , scan & translate is my go to.

Very easy to use both from scanning documents and from images you have been sent. It allows you to select an area within each image to capture characters using the OCR software, then it displays what it has found and shows the language it believes it has detected. If it's incorrect you can choose both the source and destination languages before hitting the translate button. I have been translating from Chinese and Portuguese both into English and the translations are accurate so far.
