iTongue Translator

iTongue – Point. Tap. Translate.

Optically translate from 9 languages ( English, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish ) to 58 languages by just pointing your camera to the text you want to be translated then move, resize and zoom the magic rectangle to grab the area you’re interested in. Use special modes for travel, reading books, newspapers or restaurant menus. Also use Text Mode for manual and offline (flight mode) translations.

IMPORTANT: iTongue is a R & D work-in-progress project. It is fully functional, the recognition of text depends on the quality of the provided image. As we said 30% of all sales went to the Red Cross foundation. Check the site for more info. We would like your opinion about iTongue, your constructive critics and your feedback. Send us your ideas, suggestions and anything you think is important - any kind of detail, so we can make it not great but the best and the only tool you would need! We are listening carefully and thank you for your emails !

4 Modes To Make It Easy
Travel Mode – use it every day whenever you’re traveling or not, move and resize the text recognition rectangle wherever  you need with your finger. Zoom in if you’re not close to the subject.

Book Mode – useful for quick translations while reading books or restaurant menus. Translate a word, a line or a whole paragraph.

Text Mode – for times when you don’t have an image. Just type your text and select the language – we've got you covered. Tap on offline to do offline translation for the 9 supported languages.

Scanner Mode – scan a document and send it to your email for further use.

Works Online & Offline
Whether you have an internet connection or not iTongue will work because it comes with a set of offline dictionaries for the following languages: English, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish. The offline mode is not as good as online, but it will get you across the point.
