Real-time, Offline OCR & Translation

The Waygo API is available as a RESTful JSON API, or as an iOS or Android SDK, and it allows you to:

  • perform state-of-the-art real-time OCR,
  • detect the position of text in images,
  • translate text between any of the supported languages,
  • replace text in images with the translated version.

The Waygo SDK can be used completely offline, and in real-time, which makes it perfect for smartphones and augmented reality devices. We currently support Chinese, Japanese, Korean, English and Spanish text, and can add further support on request.

The API is currently only available on request. If you would like access, please send us an email to We generally respond to requests within a couple of days.
