99-cent iPhone PicTranslator

November 10, 2009

This is incredible! With PicTranslator, you snap a photo of any text written in a language other than English, and your iPhone will translate it for you. Not only that, for many languages, it will even tell you how to pronounce what you have found!

It’s a bit slow, at up to a minute or so per short translation, and you must have internet access, but this is astounding technology.

I don’t have an iPhone….but F does! I’m already imagining uses for travel: menus, newspapers, maps, gossip magazines, instructions, street signs…Check it out!
