WordLens is a brilliant app that translates printed words from one language to another using only your smartphone’s video camera, in real time. And you don’t need to be connected to a network! Even better, it’s free! Right now you can buy these language pairs:
- English ⇆ Russian
- English ⇆ Portuguese
- English ⇆ German
- English ⇆ Italian
- English ⇆ French
- English ⇆ Spanish
It’s best used on clearly printed text (e.g. signs, menus) but you can also look up translations by typing them in. It does NOT recognize handwriting or stylized fonts. It’s not perfect, but you can get the general meaning. WordLens is available for iOS, Android and Google Glass devices.
