@patchouly So, you would have me believe that a phone can perform image processing, optical character recognition, and translation faster than a high-end desktop workstation? Okay...

Although i would really like this (i think this would work wonders for Asian / Western typography) i als think there is a drawback. Language is more than a set of characters lined up to form a word or sentence. It's also something cultural. If we would only focus on what something translates to and not what it means we still have a barrier. the Dutch "luister nou even pik" (mainly heard in Rotterdam), translates to "listen to me penis" while it means "relax buddy, and hear what i have to say". I think it will take a while for an AI to see that difference.
