Xware (Main Office: Tokyo, Japan) has released its app SmartMenu in Australia. SmartMenu is a digital menu for iPad that translates and displays menus in 12 different languages.   




SmartMenu Official Site:

Company Background
Xware first released SmartMenu in October, 2013, domestically in Japan where it was particularly welcomed in tourist-heavy regions, now having over 1,300 registered users. SmartMenu allows restaurants, cafes, bars, and the like to translate their entire menu from English or Japanese into 12 different target languages. Through this translation service, SmartMenu aims to dismantle language-barriers between customer and server, and allow us to connect cross-culturally over that one universal love; food.

What is SmartMenu?
SmartMenu users can translate their restaurant’s menu into 12 languages just by registering said menu on the SmartMenu website.  The translated menu is then available as both a digital menu and a printed menu, and can also be viewed online. Users can also assign multiple photos and videos to specific menu items, giving their customer’s a greater understanding of the food being prepared for them.

SmartMenu in English
SmartMenu features an online Control Screen, where users can add, edit, and delete registered menus. These menus are then viewable from the SmartMenu iPad app in any of the 12 target languages. As SmartMenu was originally designed for domestic use in Japan, these features required users to work in Japanese. Now, SmartMenu is entirely English-compatible.

How to Start
SmartMenu is free to use—just follow the link below.
