Language barrier is one of the biggest battles when traveling abroad. It is the gateway to a culture and its people. The constant deciphering of a different language can get overwhelming, especially when you have to keep asking around, decoding everything from road signs to restaurant menus.
A solution is overdue, and for it, Google Translate, has announced an update. The recently launched ‘instant camera translation’ feature will allow users to translate not only typed word into a different language, but also pictures that need translating. All the user would need to do is snap a shot of the object that the text is written on, highlight the text that needs translation, and click ‘translate’, and voila, there it is – instant translation!
This update is especially useful to travelers, as they can use the app to translate instructions, shop names, websites, brochures, road signs and menus conveniently when in a foreign country. All they will need, is decent internet connectivity and an iPhone or Android camera. Here are all the languages the app allows you to translate in.
