Brace yourself for a super cool feature on Xerox ConnectKey enabled multifunctional printers (MFPs)—a robust translation service bundled up within another handy app.
Ideal for small to mid-sized businesses across all markets, the Easy Translator app is a subscription based app for Xerox MFPs and mobile devices capable of translating text documents into more than 44 languages with the push of a button. How It Works
Historically, translation services have been a manual, time-consuming process. Small businesses today are looking for faster alternatives that won’t slow down communications. With Easy Translator Services from Xerox, companies can compete in a global economy with multilingual documents.
Machine translation utilizes optical character recognition (OCR) technology and requires a subscription through Xerox’s Web portal. Cost is calculated by the number of pages you submit for translation.
Upon walkup to your ConnectKey enabled device, users load their documents just like they would to make a copy or scan, and follow a few simple steps:
- Select the Easy Translator app on the touchscreen.
- Choose desired language for translation.
- Choose one of the 20 available output methods, such as an instant print, working file, or image file.
- Press Start
The system quickly scanned originals, and using OCR technology, translates the text. Translations can be either printed or received as an editable draft via email. A mobile app is also available utilizing the same process where using can upload photos on their device for instant translation.
Here’s a quick video demo from Xerox on the MFP walkup process:

In addition to machine translations with the Easy Translator app, Xerox offers three additional levels of translation services with structured fees and varying turnaround times:
Express translation offers a quick rendering of your document by offering machine translation with human post-editing, which ensures coherent and fluent translation results with quick turnaround.
For targeted translation documents such as contracts, articles, guides, or proposals, your document is translated by highly-trained professionals and then proofread separately by a dedicated editor. This method take a little longer than Express.
Best for business-specific, highly specialized or scientific content, Xerox provides dedicated, expertly-trained, and field-relevant specialists for the highest level of terminological and stylistic accuracy. This method has a longer turnaround time.
Whatever your organizational size, translation requirements, or budget constraints, Xerox Easy Translator Services and the Easy Translator app are unique ways to streamline communication in today’s competitive business world. If you’d like to see the Easy Translator app in action, contact us today.
