Xerox Introduces a Copier That Translates as It Copies


In an era of increased digitization, the Xerox machine has gone from being an integral part of the corporate landscape to the oversized, old-fashioned device taking up space in the corner of the office. Though the majority of offices haven’t gone completely paper free, most of us are making fewer trips to the copy machine than we did in years past. But now, Xerox has launched a new program that will get people excited about making copies again: an automatic translation service.

According to Gizmodo, Xerox’s Easy Translator Service can automatically translate documents into 35 different languages. The service works on Connect Key-enabled multifunction printers and via Android and iOS apps. The first 30 pages translated are free, and then after that, it costs $10 for every 10 pages copied (or $5000 for 100,000 pages).

While there are already plenty of translation apps out there, most of them only translate text that can be digitally copied and pasted. Xerox offers the advantage of automatically copying physical documents, JPEGs, and PDFs. Check it out in action in the video above.
