"Translating from your Android camera"

Reviewed by / Sep 26, 2012

Photo Translator is a simple app that allows you to translate any word captured with your camera

Actually, Photo Translator allows users to translate captured words by two different ways: from gallery pictures or from the camera. First off, users have to choose the languages. This full version comes with more than 25 languages. Second, choose the way the word is going to be captured and wait a few second to get it translated.

Photo Translator is inspired by a good idea. However, the app needs to be enhanced in some regards. On the one hand, it takes too long to translate the word. On the other hand, sometimes it doesn't recognize the word. From my point of view, this two points are basic to make it really usable.

This doesn't mean that the app doesn't work at all: the app works pretty good but should be enhanced in this regard. I wish developer will focused on this issue since the idea behind the app is really good.

    I really should have read the reviews before paying money for this. Attempted to translate Japanese text. Did everything including scanning it into my computer and cleaning it up in Photoshop. Half the time it translated as nothing and the other half it

    I used this to translate some Chinese text to English. I was astonished at how well the text recognition worked, and was satisfied with the translation (I can't read Chinese so I don't really know how accurate it is) Rather than trusting this app to take
