Fuji Xerox's new prototype photocopier promises to translate text on the fly while maintaining page layout and graphics. It can scan a printed sheet written in Japanese and translate it into Chinese, English or Korean.

Unfortunately, the machine makes very "loose" translations. In the same manner that Babelfish and similar web translation services don't translate very clearly, the Fuji Xerox machine needs some fine tuning. But it's not a bad start for people who deal with international documents on a regular basis.
