Golds for Peribahasa Scanner in iCOMPEX 2014

iCompex 2014 is an innovation competition thru exhibition organized by Politeknik Sultan Abdul Halim Muadzam Shah (POLIMAS).

Once the text is normalized, it utilized Google Translate API to translate the normalized Malay text into English. More pics –>
