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
  • Look up translations by typing them in, too

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 4S/4/3gs, iPod Touch with video camera, or iPad with video camera
  • requires iOS 4.0 or later
  • *** iPhone 3gs and iPod Touch do not have zoom or flash light features
  • *** iPod Touch and iPad 2 cameras do not have auto-focus feature, which will result in reduced translation quality
