If you are in a foreign country and you dont know the local language of that country, you need not worry. Just get an iPhone!
A new application has been developed for iPhone that translates words viewed through the phone’s camera. WordLens uses the iPhone’s inbuilt camera to recognise text that is viewed through the lens.
Google issued a major update to their Google Translate app for Android today taking it up to version 2.5. The most impressive change included in this update is the ability to take a picture with your device’s camera and perform the translation by brushing over the text you want translated.
I am interested in buying the Motorola XT720 unlocked to use on Straight Talk wireless service. I like that it has an 8-megapixel camera, Android, and especially HDMI out. I would prefer a slider keyboard also, but they are probably out of my price range.
Google+ users can expect to see a new feature gradually hitting the web interface of Google’s social media site that will allow you to translate posts and comments in different languages. It will supposedly work similarly to how Google automatically translates web pages for you in Chrome, which is a nice addition especially if you frequent pages that have many international users.
I'm currently at the beginning of a translation MA in the UK, and in a few weeks I should start working on the proposal of my final translation project. Although I still have some time to choose the text I will translate, I should start thinking about what text to translate.

I pulled it from a deodexed rome that was built for the new N3 of the other Korean handset manufacturer. I claim no responsibility for this apk at all. I just pulled it and am posting it here for you because it has a better jpeg algorithm than the LG camera. The LG camera jpeg algorithm is kind of hard on flesh-tones.
