Offline OCR and Language Translation

This article describes a procedure for performing offline Optical Character Recognition (OCR) and translation of documents that come in the form of a scanned image (jpg, png etc) or PDF.

The assumption is that these documents contain sensitive/personal information, which makes upload to online OCR and Translation services a non-feasible option due to exchange of sensitive information with outside parties.

The approach also assumes the translation and OCR is performed on a Windows 10 platform.
