Abstract

Proposed is a language translator for a document printer. The proposed system concept 10 is illustrated in the accompanying Figure. A document, in one language, is received by a facsimile terminal (FAX) 20. The received document is scanned by an optical character reader (OCR) 40 and processed thereafter by a linguistics device 60. Linguistics device 60 may be, for example, a software translation tool that formats an output, in another language, suitable for importing to printer 80.
