By Vivien Seguy

Yomiwa is an easy offline way to translate Japanese with your camera. The app displays a pop up with English translations and definitions of single kanjis and words as soon as you point to Japanese characters with your iPhone or iPad. You can as well take a picture or pick one from your camera roll and navigate it to translate chosen characters. Yomiwa also has a built-in drawing feature for you to draw and translate Japanese characters on your touch-screen, in order to learn and practice writing Japanese. Yomiwa also includes a built-in dictionary searchable in Japanese (text or drawing) or English (as well as French, German and Spanish).

- A complete built-in dictionary with full informations about words, kanjis (on-yomi, kun-yomi, meaning, stroke order etc.) and example sentences
- An Optical Character Recognition (OCR) algorithm which lets you translate Japanese characters with your camera or from your camera roll pictures
- Translate words made of all types of Japanese characters (Kanji, Hiragana, Katakana)
- A proper names database (such as people names, places, locations...)
- Japanese pronunciation of words in roman letters (romaji) or hiragana / katakana.
- Get the meaning of single or combinations of Kanjis
- Draw characters on the screen to translate them and practice writing Japanese
- Read either horizontal or vertical Japanese text

Yomiwa is perfect for:
- Use as a dictionary

Customer Reviews

If you are looking for an app to help you with kanji, look no further.

So far it has been pretty great. I have been trying to expand my vocabulary and understanding of Japanese and this really helps out quite a bit with all of its features.

Best OCR

If you have a steady hand, use this app to read kanji live. Otherwise take a photo.

Excellent for typed fonts. And the wall allows you to share text for human based reading.

Really like it so far.
