New photocopier translates documents

In an interesting twist with printers & photocopiers, Fuji Xerox have come up with a unique model that can take a Japanese document, scan it, and then print out an English, Chinese or Korean. It’ll also do the same sort of thing in any of those languages whether it means sending an English document and printing it into Japanese.

It’s certainly a way of breaking the language barrier present in many businesses and marketplaces and it uses a new type of technology that can distinguish between text, lines and images to preserve the original layout of documents even when the information is translated.

At the moment the language-translation photocopier is just a prototype but when it hits, expect Japanese game manuals to be the first thing geeks run through it to play all the latest Japanese games.
