See the world in your language: instantly translate printed words using your built-in video camera, in real time! (PLEASE NOTE: language packs must be purchased separately from within the app.) Buy language pairs using in-app purchase: + English ⇆ Russian + English ⇆ Portuguese + English ⇆ German + English ⇆ Italian + English ⇆ French + English ⇆ Spanish Try out the included modes first so you can see the technology in action: - Reverse Words (spell all words backwards) - Erase Words (digital white-out) Word Lens gives you translation on the go: - NO NETWORK required - results appear immediately on your video screen when you need it, anywhere in the world. - Easy to use, like the regular camera. - Also look up translations by typing them in. Get the best quality out of your translations: - Best used on clearly printed text (e.g. signs, menus). - Does NOT recognize handwriting or stylized fonts. - It's not perfect, but you can get the general meaning! - Keep text in focus by holding it at least one hand-length away (or even further for iPod and iPad owners). iOS device support: *** iPhone 3gs and old iPod Touch do not have zoom or flash light features. *** old iPod Touch and iPad 2 cameras do not have auto-focus feature, which will result in reduced translation quality.
