Word Lens


Translate texts in real time through your iPhone's camera



Rate this App

Word Lens is an application that allows you to translate any sign or printed text in real time, thanks to the camera on your iPhone or iPod Touch.

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).
