how do I scan in a document to be translated


I have two Spanish speaking children who has just came to our school. Their English is very limited. I understood this program would allow me to scan in worksheets which we are doing in class and they could be translated into Spanish; however, I am having difficultly in doing this. If you could help me I would be grateful.

I would not use a computer program to translate a work sheet in to Spanish. I as far as I can tell, all of them do a poor job. Better to find a Spanish speaking parent through your school's PTA to retype the page in Spanish.. That way your will be sure that the Spanish speaking students will at least understand the worksheet.

Hello and welcome to the forum.

I'm sorry, but don't think there's a scan program like that on SpanishDict.

You can certainly type text into the translator in order to get the translation, and then copy and paste the translation into a Word document (or other word processor) for printing purposes.
