Now there's a scanner that can translate your document, too. Plus-Tek USA's
ScanFX uses a combination of a scanning device, optical character
recognition technology and translation software to translate English
documents into Spanish, French or German in under two minutes per page.
Plus-Tek officials describe it as "a document-imaging Swiss army knife."
The one drawback is that the documents are translated word-for-word, so the
grammar doesn't always make sense. (Information Week 12/12/94 p.74)
Don't you just hate when you finish that documentation in only 15 minutes
per page but it doesn't make sense. ;-)
