NOTE: This paid version of Word Lens INCLUDES ONE LANGUAGE pack.
Available language pairs:

Word Lens gives you translation on the go:
- NO NETWORK required – results appear immediately on your video screen when you need it, anywhere in the world.
- Simple to use, like the regular camera
- Look up translations by typing them in, or clicking on a word.
Notes for getting the best quality out of your translations:
- Best used on clearly printed text (e.g. signs, menus)
- DOES NOT recognize handwriting or stylized fonts
- It’s not perfect, but you can get the general meaning!
- Keep text in focus by holding it at least one hand-length away and tap-to-focus if autofocus is struggling.
- Turn on the flashlight (if available on your device)
- Zoom in (if available on your device)
Some features are device dependent. Not all device cameras can zoom, nor do all devices have a flashlight.
