Google Optical Character Recognition (OCR), allows your application to create editable Google Documents from highttp://www.blogger.com/post-create.g?blogID=17555522h-resolution images containing text (such as faxes or scanned letters). To perform OCR on a .png, .jpg, or .gif upload, add the ocr=true parameter onto your upload request:
POST /feeds/default/private/full?ocr=true HTTP/1.1

Check the “Convert text from PDF or image files to Google Docs documents” when you upload your scanned images (JPEG, GIF, PNG) or PDFs, and Google Docs will extract text and formatting from the scans for you to edit away.


Google Translate is integrated with the Documents List Data API. As a result, you can translate a document during upload. Simply add the targetLanguage and sourceLanguage parameters to your upload request:

POST /feeds/default/private/full/?targetLanguage=de&sourceLanguage=en HTTP/1.1
