Google Translate Camera Gets Automatic Upgrade

The Google Translate camera app has long been a source of quick and convenient translation. Simply hold up the camera to text that is in a language that you don’t understand, whether it’s a menu, street sign, or poster, and the camera will (theoretically) translate the text for you into the language that you understand. While this feature is handy, the upgrade for automatic detection of language takes the guesswork out of using the app. Say you are in a country where the people speak multiple languages, and you approach a sign that you don’t know which language the writing is in, instead of guessing and toggling through options on the camera app, the app not automatically detects the language.
Google Translate’s camera (or computer vision translation capabilities) also got an upgrade with an addition of 60 new languages for instant translation. Approximately 25 of the newly added languages, including Arabic, Swahili, and Urdu, are available for offline translations and require no network connection. However, translations are more accurate when your device is connected to the internet.
There’s also a new look with three features on the bottom of
the app. “Instant” translates text into your language when you simply
point your camera at it. “Scan” is used for when you take a photo of
text to be translated, and highlight the text to translate into your native
language. “Import” lets you translate text from photos that you have already
taken.
