Translate texts from images

translate text from imagesGoogle Goggles now can translate texts from images. Yup, it doesn’t just grab texts out of images with an OCR (Optical Character Recognition) engine, but also translates from one language to another. Using your Android powered phone, you can take a snapshot of anything written in non-English using the phone’s camera, and you’ll get the English version out of it! It’s really cool and it opens to many possibilities:

  • You’ll never eat the wrong food again in a Chinese restaurant
  • You can now go to the right toilet especially those without the gender picture
  • No more guessing games

From the video (see below), it looks like you’ll still have to take pictures and connect to the internet to translate the texts, which may take a while if you have a list of things you need to translate. In the future, you might be able to just use the camera and they’ll get translated in an instant while you move the camera around?
