Translator Chingoo is a mobile app that allows users to snap a picture or choose a picture from the user's camera roll and have all words in the picture to be translated into English.
Sol Park created this app using React Native, using the Google Vision API for text detection in images, and the Google Translate API to translate those words into English. She also made use of Google Cloud Storage using a separate server to store the images that the user choose. After an image is uploaded, the app receives the image data and runs them through the text detection API and translate API.
The current state of the app is designed for Androids, and is a work in progress to incorporate more languages to be translated to, and be compatible for other devices as well.
