How can I copy and paste contents of a scanned document into Google translator. Please!!!!?

Question by Jah: How can I copy and paste contents of a scanned document into Google translator. Please!!!!?
I am trying to translate documents from Danish into English. I know Google has a translator, but it requires the text to be copied and pasted into their translation box. The problem is that I am scanning these documents into the computer, and when I open the document to edit it, it doesn’t give me the ability to copy and paste, so that I can translate various parts of the document. Anyone have a solution to my problem? Any help would be graciously appreciated.

That’s because a scanner is actually a type of camera that takes a picture of what you are scanning. This eliminates your ability to edit the test. You could try using the OCR software that came with your scanner. It can make an editable copy of the text, but OCR isn’t perfect. It does not handle lines or layouts very well. Good Luck.

There are actually a lot of particulars like that to take into consideration. That is a nice point to carry up. I provide the ideas above as basic inspiration however clearly there are questions like the one you carry up where the most important factor will likely be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if greatest practices have emerged round things like that, but I’m certain that your job is clearly recognized as a good game.
