Word Lens

By Quest Visual

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


See the world in your language: instantly translate printed words using your built-in video camera, in real time! (PLEASE NOTE: language packs must be purchased separately from within the app.)

Buy language pairs using in-app purchase:
+ English ⇆ Russian
+ English ⇆ Portuguese
+ English ⇆ German
+ English ⇆ Italian
+ English ⇆ French
+ English ⇆ Spanish

Try out the included modes first so you can see the technology in action:
- Reverse Words (spell all words backwards)
- Erase Words (digital white-out)

Word Lens gives you translation on the go:
- NO NETWORK required - results appear immediately on your video screen when you need it, anywhere in the world.
- Easy to use, like the regular camera.
- Also look up translations by typing them in.

Get the best quality out of your translations:
- Best used on clearly printed text (e.g. signs, menus).
- Does NOT recognize handwriting or stylized fonts.
- It's not perfect, but you can get the general meaning!
- Keep text in focus by holding it at least one hand-length away
(or even further for iPod and iPad owners).

iOS device support:
*** iPhone 3gs and old iPod Touch do not have zoom or flash light features.
*** old iPod Touch and iPad 2 cameras do not have auto-focus feature, which will result in reduced translation quality.

Definitely useful

I shed the 5 dollars for German translation and I have to say that I use it quite often. I've shown this many times to friends and they can't believe this is done real time and with such a match of font and colors, and I have to agree. It is great to have an offline resource to translate so many thing effortlessly. Good the addition of manual dictionary search. One suggestion I'd like to give is to be able to lock focus like many of the cameras available for the iPhone. When you use it to translate different parts of a leaflet/brochure focus goes
wild when moving the iPhone around.

Absolutely amazing

This app is amazing i hardly believed this worked until I tried it, great app
