Google Translate has always been my to-go website / app for various translations from and to different languages and I thought that was perfect enough.. until this.
I’ve been stumped when I’ve learnt Google Translate’s latest features and I though they were too good to be true, but when I’ve tried these features first hand, they’re real and they kick a**!
Translate Texts From Pictures
It’s exactly what it says, the latest feature within Google Translate’s App (on Android platform so far) lets you snap pictures of multiple lines of texts, the app then automatically detects legible texts and underline them, you highlight what you want to be translated from that text with your finger and click go. a couple of seconds later and you’ll see the translation on your screen. Heaven!
Some of you might think of this as another Word Lens – like app, but it’s not and the variety of languages within eliminates all sort of comparison between the two.
Translate Texts From SMS
Another useful feature is the ability to translate texts you’ve received through SMS. Steps are fairly simple, click the options menu, select Translate SMS and click on the SMS you want to be translated. DONE.
Can’t wait to see what’s next, as for now, click the link here to get the App from the Play Store. (Again, Sorry guys it’s Android only for now)
