ABBYY FineReader Engine has been integrated into Communilator by RantNetwork. Communilator is the first ever translation app for smartphones that features capabilities for reading and translating text in over 50 languages.

With Communilator, users can turn images captured with the smartphone’s camera into text for use with FineReader, and have it delivered as speech in 21 languages. The application provides translation for more than 3,000 language pairs and is integrated with email and SMS. It will be launched on the iPhone and BlackBerry with Android and Windows Mobile platforms. Users will be able to download Communilator for free at RantNetwork’s Web site.

“The ability to communicate in a variety of languages has taken on a growing significance in today’s increasingly global society,” said Dean Tang, CEO at ABBYY USA. “ABBYY technology makes it easy for both enterprise and consumer mobile phone users to take the information around them and use it in new ways. Integration of the FineReader Engine within the Communilator application makes it simple for someone to overcome potential language barriers and truly interact and communicate with the world around them.”

FineReader Engine is a software development kit (SDK) for integrating  optical character recognition (OCR), intelligent character recognition (ICR), optical mark recognition (OMR), optimization-based recognition (OBR), as well as document and PDF conversion technologies into applications.

“With its advanced recognition and conversion capabilities, our use of ABBYY FineReader has enabled the Communilator to become an essential tool for travel, international business, global social networking and for the legal, medical and academic professions. Importantly, it provides a key component of a Second Language Support program. Our users love the outstanding OCR precision, speed of image recognition and format retention,” says Kenneth Volet, CEO of RantNetwork.
