How does this automation work?

Bardeen's workflow leverages powerful OCR (Optical Character Recognition) and translation technology to extract text from an image stored in Dropbox and translate it to a language of your choice. This automation is especially useful for professionals who work with multilingual documents and need to quickly understand content without manual data entry or language barriers.

Here's how this workflow processes an image from Dropbox and translates the text:

  • Step 1: Retrieve image from Dropbox - Bardeen finds a specific image file in your Dropbox by matching the file name you provide. Dropbox is a cloud storage service that allows you to access files from anywhere.
  • Step 2: Extract text from image - The OCR command is used to extract readable text from the chosen image file. This text will be the input for the translation.
  • Step 3: Translate text - The extracted text is then translated to your target language using DeepL, known for its high-quality translations. You will need to specify the target language for the translation process.
