The Translate app from Google is already quite powerful. You can use it in camera mode to snap a photo of text and get a translation in 36 languages. The latest update enables you to do more. Now you can point your camera at a sign or text and get instant translation. For instance, you can instantly translate signs and menus in a foreign country even if you don’t know anything about the native language.
The instant translation currently works for translation from English to and from French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish. Let’s not forget that the app can help you have a conversation with others in an unfamiliar language. You can find out more about the app here.
