Translation From Images On Your Phone by Google


Google has introduced a new service that ties Google Translate to Google Goggles. It means there’s a new OCR tool useable on your phone that can detect language from images and translate them. An example of a good way to use this is of a restaurant menu with foreign unknown language – the service uses OCR (optical character recognition) and allows your to brush your fingers over the screen to select the part of the menu in the image you want translated. The update is currently available for Android’s version of Google Translate and supports Czech, Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Turkish languages.
