Google Translate can now translate text in images through your phone's camera. The feature means users can, for example, use their Android phone's camera to take a picture of a menu in a foreign language, then have the app translate the text into their own tongue.
At the bottom of the camera view, tap “Instant.” Point your phone's camera towards the picture you want to translate. The app will translate the text on your picture. If you'd like to take a still picture and then translate it, then tap “Scan,” capture a photo, and let the app translate it.
