Google Trans­late

Mac Format - - APPLE WORLD - Free De­vel­oper Google/Quest Vis­ual Works with iPhone, iPod touch, iPad

Word Lens was al­ways suf­fi­ciently ad­vanced tech­nol­ogy, and de­vel­oper Quest Vis­ual’s ac­qui­si­tion by Google means its mag­i­cal tech has now been folded into the Google Trans­late app. Tap the cam­era icon, point it at a sign in a lan­guage you can’t read, and a trans­la­tion is placed, live, over the im­age. It’s not per­fect, of­ten try­ing a few times be­fore you recog­nise a sen­tence, but it’s enough to give you the mean­ing of what you’re look­ing at.
