Don’t let language barriers stop you from traveling to different countries. You can read the signs, ask for directions, find a restroom, and more with Google Translate, free for iOS and Android devices.
You can speak, type, write, or take a picture to translate between 80 languages. No Internet connection is needed. You can save your translations and access them from any device. (Camera input and offline translation are available for Android 2.3 and above.)
Also, in May, Google acquired Word Lens developer Visual Quest. Word Lens translates printed words from one language to another with your smartphone's video camera, in real time. No network connection needed. You can look up translations by typing them in, or clicking on a word.
Both the World Lens app and the language packs are free to download for a limited time while Visual Quest transitions to Google.
