We apologize for translation service interruptions this week. These are caused by changes in Google Translate API. New version is already in review and should be released soon.

If your text is not immediately translated, please save it to archive using top button, then try again in a minute or two. Thank you for your patience!

Babelshot 1.0.1 hit the app store

First update has been approved by Apple stuff and is available now. The most important change is dramatically improved quality of Italian and Dutch OCR. If you are traveling into Italy or The Netherlands, be sure to install the update before you go. For everyone else, there are some decent improvements in other languages and a few bug fixes.
