Traveling to another country can be an amazing experience. The opportunity to immerse yourself in a different culture can give you a new perspective. However, it can be hard to fully enjoy the experience if you do not understand the local language. For example, ordering food from a menu you can not read can be an adventure. Today we are introducing a new feature of Google Goggles that will prove useful to travelers and monoglots everywhere: Goggles translation.
Here’s how it works:
Point your phone at a word or phrase. Use the region of interest button to draw a box around specific words. Press the shutter button.
If Goggles recognizes the text, it will give you the option to translate
Press the translate button to select the source and destination languages.
