What could possibly be better than going to a foreign country and actually knowing what the signs say? With the Word Lens app, by simply snagging a photo of a sign or any text in a foreign language the app will instantly translate it for you. This app is powered by Google Translate. The best part of this app is that it works with or without network on your phone at the time. The app however at the moment only has a Spanish to English and English to Spanish translation. Hopefully they will have an abundance of new language packs available tomorrow. Another con is that this app is currently only for the iPhone, but hopefully they will come out with an app like this for Android soon. The add on for languages is $5 and that is definitely well worth the price when you are travelling.
