The Google Translate app for Android was updated yesterday. The new update brings the ability to translate text from photos. Now if you take a photo of a sign, menu, or any other text in another language using your Android device, you can tell the app to try and translate it based on a selection of the text that you specify.
For now the new feature is limited to Czech, Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Turkish, suggests report. But Google says it will add more languages over time, according to Mashable.
Updated to version 2.5, you can download the new updated Google Translate for Android from Play Store. If you have the app already, you could be seeing new update notification soon in awhile. To get it running, you might be running a device with Android Gingerbread or above.
