Google Purchases Cool Translation App

 

I just discovered this amazing app that is sure to help all of you who did not brush up on your Russian, Portuguese, German, Italian, French or Spanish like you promised yourself you would in preparation for your next vacation.

Back in 2010, a company called Quest Visual debuted a little app called Word Lens. It scarcely seemed possible, but the app translated a number of different languages in real-time using just the smartphone’s camera.

When traveling in a foreign country, Word Lens users simply hold the phone up to a sign and the camera would immediately translate it.

Take note that the app itself is free and for a limited time, the languages are also FREE!  Each language normally runs for about $3 each to download.

I hope this app comes in handy. Let me know how it goes!
