How to Translate Anything Using Android Camera


When technology developed, along with it travelling arose too. I think I am not wrong with this point. In the past years, there were very few modes of transport but now we have the ability to fly to another country, crossing so many seas in just one day time and the other reason is, most of the people were not aware of the beauty of the world, until technology was introduced.

When the technology popped in, the smartphones, cameras and internet were shown up to the world. Where people started taking pictures and posting them everywhere and then the rest of the world started to discover how amazing and beautiful the other countries are and so they make it one of their travel destinations. These were some reasons for why travelling around the world rose so high with technology. 

We should not forget to mention one important point here. The language, which will be a complications when we travel out of the country. We will definitely not know all the languages in the world and all the people in other countries will not know the language we know. When we travel to a different country, we will see all the notice boards, road sign boards, restaurant boards and also the food menu will be written in their language in most of the instance. When this happens, we will be left helpless.


I had to face a similar situation, where all the important messages and notes were all written in their mother language. Whereby I was not even able to communicate or even understand anything. I couldn’t buy the food I wanted because the language in which the entire menu was written was something I couldn’t figure out what. In such situations, we can’t try using the translator, where we will have to type the preferred language down, so that it will translate it into the language we want. But how to type it down when we are not familiar with that language and don’t know what type of letters they are. Our keyboard won’t have those fonts whereby we will not be able anything about it.

When I was suffering with this language problem, my friend who is a traveler herself, insisted me with a new translating method. I was shocked and surprised as I was not aware of such a technology that was available. We should know that along with all the technological improvements, there came solutions for all the type of problems based in this era. When we have a smartphone in our hand and a camera in it, then that’s all that we want. These will help us with the language translation with just a click of a picture.

Amazed? I was amazed by the way. All you got to do is, open your phone, click a photo on the specific sign board or the piece of language, which is written down and you want to translate, the app will automatically concert the language into the specific language you want using the picture. It looks simple isn’t it? With this, you will not have to try to find the font of that language and type it down. Just a click of a picture and you get the language translated. Now let’s take a look at two apps that will help you with this feature.
