The Google Translate App

Google recently announced an update to their Google Translate app that many in education or those that travel will definitely appreciate.

The app will now do a real time conversion translation of road and street signs, menus, and other text by using the camera. Many are familiar with Word Lens app that I have blogged about it in the past. Google purchased Word Lens and made it free for all languages it supports. Now they have gone one step further to integrate that into their existing Translate app.
This works for English to and from: German, Italian, Portuguese, French, Russian and Spanish with plans to add more languages soon.

(Android and iOS)

Check out their announcement here. http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2015/01/hallo-hola-ola-more-powerful-translate.html
