All you need to do is select the language you'd like to translate, and point your camera at the text, trying to keep it as stable as possible. Next you'll see, in real time, the translation appear on your screen.
The best way to use the application is for menus, posters, signs, and headlines. The text needs to appear as clear as possible to avoid any errors in the translation. It's important to note that the program cannot recognize handwriting.
Word Lens is a truly magical application. The first time you use it, you may feel as though you've stepped into some kind of science fiction world.
Compatible with iPhone and iPod Touch (fourth generation).
