Word Lens is the translation app for iPhone that does this amazing task. Wouldn’t you be much more happier as a traveler when you know what those road signs mean? I sure would be. To see this iPhone translator app in action, check out the below video.

At the moment this translation app for iPhone allows Spanish-to-English and English-to-Spanish translations only. However, the app will eventually expand to become a universal translator. Word Lens does not recognize handwriting yet but everything is in printed format these days, which makes the need for handwritten recognition minimal. A bonus to this great iPhone translator app is that it works with a built-in dictionary. Therefore it does not need to connect to the internet to do the translations. This would sure save roaming charges while traveling in foreign countries.

Word Lens is available to download for FREE from the App Store. I say download it now before you have to pay for it as this translation app for iPhone sure is becoming popular. So what are you waiting for? Get this great iPhone translator app on your iPhone and start translating!

    I see this leading to lots of funny translation mishaps. :)

    Worth a try, though. Better having an idea of what it says than being completely clueless!

    Will be downloading this later today.
