Rob's OCR & Translate

OCR and then translate any file or photo

This Shortcut uses optical character recognition to recognize text from various input sources. The text is then translated to a language of your choice.

The original and translated results are displayed on your screen, copied to your clipboard, and optionally, saved to a file.

Rob’s OCR requires a free personal api key from Space.OCR. The api key will be saved in a small file in your iCloud.

You will be prompted to enter your api key the first time the Shortcut runs. If you do not have one, the Shortcut will guide you through the process to get the api key.
