    Is it possible to translate the printed text with Android phone?

    While I was going through a book, I found a text printed in another language. I need a translator to recognize the text. One of my friends told that the Android phone can provide translation facility with third party app. Is it true? Which application can be used for it?

    This can be accomplished with Google Goggles app available in Play store. Install the app into the device first and open it. Tap the ‘snapshot’ option visible on the main menu. This will redirect you to the Camera app in the phone. Point the camera over the word you want to translate and press the button located at the bottom right corner. The app will accept the selected word as place of interest and show up a box around it. Use that box to highlight the word and hit the ‘Shutter’ button. The photograph of that text will be taken afterwards and the app will start scanning the text. The translated result will appear on the screen after a few seconds and you can get into the details by tapping on the result.
