THE FUTURE OF TRANSLATION

Word Lens

Word Lens…  The purpose of this app is simple.  Point your iphone or ipod touch’s camera at a sign in one language and view it in another.  I can still remember the first time I saw the youtube video for this app.  It seemed too amazing to be true.  The background of a sign remains the same color, size etc.. and the font of the wording is matched precisely.

I immediately downloaded the free app, then purchased the Spanish to English plug in for a few dollars.  I was simply amazed by this app.  It was literally like I putting on a pair of glasses that allowed me to read natively in another language.

  1. It is a great app! But is it using google translate or something like that in the background?
