Translating Photocopier

According to Gizmodo, Fuji Xerox is developing a photocopier that can translate Japanese text to English. If functional, this copier would be very successful, but past experiences cause me to believe machines don’t do a very good job translating. I’m skeptical as to how well it will function, but I’m also excited as this is a a first time thing and also the fact that this is a practical idea never thought of before.

    Does anyone know what system it uses for the translation? Systran? Google’s?

    @Ben Canon:
    Most likely it has it’s own system for translating, which is why it hasn’t been released yet. The printer will connect to an online server to find the translations, so you’ll always have an updated machine. The probability for a literal translation is high, so don’t expect much from this product.

    I prefer using the new Ricoh Color product line over the Xerox Color line.

    Ricoh has stronger and better systems, speaking from experience.

    I wouldnt doubt it, if this post gets removed, since Xerox doesnt want people to know the truth.

    Thank goodness, for Ricoh and The Copier Group.
    I bought a system through

    Xerox used to be fine for me, but the Guys at The Copier Group were so helpful, they let me know that Ricoh was a better way to go…

    Thanks Ricoh.
