The built-in translator: Translate Digital Data.

January 22, 2024

Having trouble analyzing data in a different language? Oxygen Forensic® Detective now has a built-in translator that can easily translate data to help reduce investigator’s case time.

With the rapid globalization, we cannot always rely on the extracted data being in a language that is known to the investigator. In order to solve this issue and reduce cases time, we have added a translation module to Oxygen Forensic® Detective at no additional charge.

Piecing together a case with multi-lingual evidence has never been easier.

How to use the built-in translator

First, make sure your Oxygen Forensic® Detective is updated to version 16.1 or newer.

Second, visit the Customer Area to download the add-on, enabling the translation. It can be opened by clicking a link within the “Translations” section of the “Options” menu.

Any text entry within the extraction can be translated into the selected language inside the grid. It is possible to translate all, several, or just one of them by selecting the corresponding option on the toolbar.
