Shoot & Translate: brilliantly mobile

How often have we been on vacation and been faced with a sign, poster or menu that we don't really understand? Disaster occurs! So, does that door say "Enter" or "Do Not Enter"? Or, would you understand what awaits you if you saw a sign on that door in German that said "Vorsicht, bissiger Hund"?

Mobile phones are an indispensable device that is always at our side. With the mobile translator Shoot & Translate, you turn your Internet-enabled phone into a readily available translation aid. You just take a picture of the object, and with the touch of a button, the text on the image is recognized and translated. With the practical "read aloud" function, your mobile phone ultimately becomes the perfect personal "prompter".

Behind the new software is the tested and proven translation technology of Personal Translator. Now, you can look up words, translate phrases and have both read aloud to you when you're on the go. It doesn't get more convenient than that!

All you have to do is make sure that your phone is always charged!

Informative signs


Isn't it quite reassuring to know why the pink bunny gets stuck in the Paris metro's door?

Not knowing Italian, you might find it difficult to understand whether you are a “zaino” or have one, let alone what to do with it.

Most of us will understand “prohibido” but the question is, what exactly shouldn’t you do in Spain when seeing this sign?

The art of reading a menu

It's better to know ahead of time what will be on your plate later...

Knowing what's written on signs, menus, etc. is often informative, can sometimes save you, and time and again can even make you laugh. Take the time to look around. You'll be amazed to find how many signs are actually around us. We took a look around. Come and take a look at the sign post forest with us! Shoot & Translate will be of use to you in many situations. More examples...
