Google Translate’s “Word Lens” Now Supports 27 Languages

It was almost magic news last January when Google integrated the “Word Lens” feature into their Google Translate app. Just place something written in one of seven different languages in front of your camera and the app would change the writing into your native language. Now, the app has been updated to support 20 more languages, making it possible to translate a total of 27 languages in real-time before your eyes. Incredible.

Using word lens is super simple. In the Translate app click on the camera icon. Then align the text in question with the camera. Word Lens does the rest.
