ABBYY TextGrabber + Translator for the iPhone® Offers Language Translation and Social Media Support

Bracknell, UK (01 November, 2011) - ABBYY®, a leading provider of document recognition, document capture, and linguistic technologies and services, today announced ABBYY TextGrabber + Translator, the new, extended version of ABBYY TextGrabber for the Apple iPhone, a popular on-device solution that turns the iPhone into a multifunctional mobile scanner. The application now allows users to quickly translate snippets of texts captured from various printed materials and information sources by using Google Translate™ technology. Captured and translated texts can be instantly shared with friends or colleagues via e-mail and SMS, or posted directly to the user's account at Facebook®, Twitter™ and Evernote®.

"With the new full-text translation function and the direct integration with the most popular social media, TextGrabber + Translator enables people to further increase their efficiency when working with text, saving time and a lot of effort otherwise spent on manual search and retyping", commented Olga Tolstunova, deputy director of the Mobile Products Department at ABBYY.

ABBYY TextGrabber + Translator for the iPhone can automatically extract text from a variety of sources - such as books, magazines, ads, timetables, etc. - while on the go by using the device's camera, or retrieve data from images stored in the device's memory. Based on ABBYY's own award-winning Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology, the utility delivers highly accurate text recognition results for 61 languages and helps users easily edit, search, translate and share information wherever they are. Via integration with Google Translate, the application supports full-text translation from 43 starting languages into more than 50 languages.

ABBYY TextGrabber + Translator also supports integration with ABBYY Lingvo® Dictionaries for iOS installed on the same device. In that case, users can access the comprehensive and up-to-date dictionary content from authoritative publishers and additional linguistic information to better understand and translate unfamiliar words and terms.

The new ABBYY TextGrabber + Translator provides a range of interface updates for user convenience, including the ability to easily turn the "crop" feature on the viewfinder and flashlight on and off.

ABBYY TextGrabber + Translator currently supports two interface languages: English and Russian. The user interface language support will be significantly extended in the next update of the program with the addition of Chinese (both traditional and simplified), German, Korean, French, Italian, Portuguese (Brazilian), and Spanish.

ABBYY TextGrabber + Translator for the iPhone is available via the App Store SM (accessible through iTunes®). The compatible devices include the Apple iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 (iOS 4.0 or later). For more information about the product, visit http://www.abbyy.com/mocr_utilities/textgrabber/

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...
Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world.

Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
