Imaging being in a situation where you need instructions for your newly-bought German washing-machine but your Deutsch are a bit rusty. Or you appear in a station in Moscow and directions of your next transit is only in Russian. Wouldn’t you wish for a friend who could speak the language to instantly translate the given text for you, without having to type a word?
Fortunately for all of us, big mama-Google has brought a cool feature earlier in 2015 and makes translation easy as a charm. It works a bit like this:
Now, after typing, voice and writing, users are able to use their camera and translate in real-time, by means of the new feature previously known by the name of WordLens.
The back story
WordLens was an innovative app developed back in 2010, by QuestVisual. It instantly became a hit and was highly promoted by Apple whereas on the other side, the app was presented in Google Play store two years later. The game-changer however, came in May 2014 when Google acquired WordLens, which then decided to integrate into their Google Translate app in the early 2015.
Best part is that you don’t even need an internet connection to use this amazing feature. Currently, it works from/to English and French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish.
We live in exciting times, don’t we?
