  18. 18. Findings: Application is very promising; no programs known with same functionality and ease of use But.. - Tarpipe is quite buggy - OCR quality Evernote - 2 languages support -Technical requirements - Data transport costs - Partly handwritten thus combination of mash-up and own code Conclusion: promising but dependent on buggy third party app’s
  19. 19. Added value of the research: The new combination of three applications makes an unique combination: an ubiquitous online translation service. The explorative research around this mash-up clarified aspects which should be improved in order to create an application which could be fully (commercially) utilized. Conclusion: - Makes life easier but for now, do not use as critical application. - Fun group project
