If we are planning to go abroad this holiday and are not too skilled with language proficiency of where you're going, Word Lens can be the application that takes us more than a pinch. Does your advantage? It makes use of augmented immediately translate those texts to place in front of the camera device to our reality. Surely translations will not be one hundred percent perfect, but the spirit of the app does not offer the best translation, but that it aims to help in specific situations and give us a notion of what the text we have before us.
The app offers several packages of languages: Russian, Portuguese, German, Italian, French and Spanish. Until recently each had to be purchased separately and the cost was quite high (about 4 €) but since Google has purchased Quest Digital, the company that developed the application, all packages have become totally free .
One of its most important features is that we do not need any network connection for the app to work, which will allow us to use it anywhere in the world without having to hire any Internet access service. On the other hand also allows you to enter text and translate it manually.
Here's a video demonstration of the application:
