What is Word Lense? Word Lens is an language translation iPhone application. I`m sure we`ve all seen a number of translation tools for iOS devices, but Word Lens strikes us as the most innovative of them all.
Word Lens lets you translate written phrases simply by pointing phone camera thru augmented reality! The optical character recognition technology recognizes the text, which is then translated and shown on your iPhone’s screen instead of the original text. 10 years ago this was just a fiction.. Now it`s reality!
Word Lens itself is free, but you must pay for the individual language packs. Currently, only English to Spanish translation and vice versa is available, and that pack costs $4.99. I`m sure this app will become an important part of equipment on travels.
