Google Translate gets smarter with language detection, Word Lens

Star Trek’s universal translator is here, and it’s on your phone.

First there was Skype’s new Translator feature which will be coming soon to a Skype app near you, and now Google Translate is adding Word Lens to their app as well! Very cool. I tried using Word Lens when it first came out, but didn’t have much practical use for it. I will definitely have to try it again! 

 

It looks like companies are starting to understand the value of translation and localization a little more now, doesn’t it? What will be the next one to join in?
