How to translate the text that appears in an image with this website

Tools with which to translate a web page we have several and very reliable, such as the one developed by Google, called Google Translate with not much originality or others like 'Deepl' that also offers very good results. Both tools have in common that of offering a more or less logical and intelligible translation of texts in languages ​​other than Spanish and vice versa. Its mechanics are very simple, we just have to select a text and place it in its translation box. Google Translate even gives you tools with which to translate an entire web page with a single click. But what happens when what we want to translate is in an image and not in text? Well, Google Translate will be unable to translate it, keeping the image the same, without the translated text.

Translate text from any image thanks to Yandex

Fortunately, we have a practical tool on the web to be able to translate any text that we have in an image. Its name is Yandex and we can access it from this link. Its operation is very simple: you just have to upload the image that contains the text on the same web page that you opened previously. This is the Yandex translator web page from which we can choose the languages ​​to translate.

We can upload the image in two ways to the Yandex website: either by dragging the image directly to the same website or by clicking where you can read ' Select File '. If you opt for the second option, a file explorer window will open from where you can choose the image and then upload it. We are going to translate the following image to see the result that it does not give, if it has enough quality to continue using the Yandex tool.


What we will do is drag the image to the Yandex website to see what the result is. This is the one who has given us.

As you can see, the tool does not directly translate the text once you have placed it on the page. Next, you must manually choose what you want Yandex to translate for you , whether a few single words, a phrase or the entire text. To select words, lines or the entire block, we must click where it says 'words' if we want the text to be translated word by word. If we want the translation of the lines separately, we will select 'Lines' and if we want to obtain the complete translation we will choose 'Blocks'.

Then, to get the translation, we will have to click on the top right of the screen where we can read ' Open in Yandex: translate '. A new screen will open that has practically the same interface as Google Translate: to one side we have the box with the original text and to its right the translated text. This is how, for example, the word-for-word translation of the text in the image we previously shared looks like.

And so is the translation that returns the full text. What Yandex does is 'extract' the text from the image and translate it with its own engine. However, from this same screen we can access the translation that Google Translate would have done if we click on the option, in small print, that we have in the lower right part of the screen.

This is the translation that Google Translate would make of the same text . It is quite similar so we can trust what Yandex tells us.
