Google Translate can now read images of text

The latest version of the Google Translate app has an interesting new feature. It can now translate text from photos. The feature is compatible with all languages available and allows users to highlight the text they want translated. All you have to do is take a photo of the language you want translated, swipe your finger to highlight the text you want translated and the app will do the rest. It can not however auto detect the language that needs to be translated, you will have to know ahead of time and make your choice. This new option is very similar to an iOS app that was released in December of 2010 named World Lens, which translates text picked up by an iPhone’s camera. World Lens only had three available languages and each of them cost a whipping $4.99 each. The new Google app is currently available in the app store and works with android phones running 2.3 gingerbread or later.
