As the machine learning research has developed, the field of translation and image analysis such as optical character recognition has made great progress. However, video translation that combines these two is slower than previous developments. In this paper, we develop an image translator that combines existing OCR technology and translation technology and verify its effectiveness. Before developing, we presented what functions are needed to implement this system and how to implement them, and then tested their performance. With the application program developed through this paper, users can access translation more conveniently, and also can contribute to ensuring the convenience provided in any environment.
