Google picks up incredible visual translation app Word Lens and makes it free
Instantly translate printed words with your phone’s camera!
Word Lens gives you translation on the go: - NO NETWORK required - results appear immediately on your video screen when you need it, anywhere in the world. - Easy to use, like the regular camera - Look up translations by typing them in, or clicking on a word.
Available language pairs: + English ⇆ Russian + English ⇆ Spanish + English ⇆ French + English ⇆ Italian + English ⇆ German + English ⇆ Portuguese
Notes for getting the best quality out of your translations: - Best used on clearly printed text (e.g. signs, menus) - DOES NOT recognize handwriting or stylized fonts - It's not perfect, but you can get the general meaning! - Keep text in focus by holding it at least one hand-length away and tap-to-focus if autofocus is struggling. - Turn on the flashlight (if available on your device) - Zoom in (if available on your device)
Some features are device dependent. Not all device cameras can zoom, nor do all devices have a flashlight.
