If you plan to digitize a lot of material, though, I'd suggest a desktop OCR program like Abbyy FineReader.
i'm living in germany now and the times when you most need to translate something is when you dont have a laptop around
I use Google Goggles to do that. I've only used it on small items (menus, street signs etc..) so I don't know how well it would work on large documents.
