Le Menu Dit translate menus from English to French without an Internet connection
By Creekcats LLC
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Le Menu Dit translates a menu from English to French.
Order easily from an English-language menu. Take a photo, crop as needed, and hit "Translate." That's it! Each line of French is immediately below the line of English, so you can point to your choice.
The Internet is not needed to use the app, but you do need a connection to rent or buy it, so be sure you buy before you travel.
Try it 3 times free. You can do several translations with a single trial: as long as you don't quit the app, additional translations don't count against you. Try several pages of a single menu, for example.
Or, if you don't have an English-language menu handy for testing, you can test the app on a real menu photo that is included. This will not count against your free trials. (A photo of a menu from a computer screen probably will not work).
Why Choose Le Menu Dit?
- It is designed to make it easy to order from a translated menu; it is not just a word translator.
- Each line of the menu is followed by its translation, so when you find what you want to order you can easily point to it on the menu.
- It is reliable. It works well on most printed menus.
- It works the same offline or online so it works anywhere: in a train, on a plane. Anywhere.
- It has a very simple interface so you can use it easily the first time, and you won't need to re-learn it if you don't use it for weeks or months.
- The translation is in bold, easy-to-read type.
Other Helpful Features
- The translation works well even if the photo has shadows or glare.
- You can use the "flashlight" button to take a photo in low-light conditions.
- Results are saved and you can easily go back and forth through them. There's no need to re-photograph and re-translate pages of a multi-page menu.
- If you do have an Internet connection, you can share results by email or Facebook.
INSTRUCTIONS AND TIPS
- The app works on printed menus; it won’t work on handwriting or on a photo of a computer screen.
- Crop the photo to a single column of the menu.
- Face the camera straight at the menu, not at an angle.
- For best results, lay the menu flat on the table to take the photo.
- If the results are bad, try taking a photo from closer or farther away. This can help if the app has trouble reading the text.
- On most menus, the app can't read a few words here and there. Don't expect perfection.
- Translation is hard: the grammar will often be imperfect.
- The app has trouble reading some fonts.
- The app sometimes doesn't recognize "&", reading it as 8 or as something else.
- The app can be confused by some graphics, including lines of dots (....), so that some words are missed.
