Google Translate Android App has ability to translate words in a picture

Google Translate

Google Translate is a great app for translating written words and even supports translating spoken words (and it will speak it in the other language). This is a great resource for teachers and ESL/ELL learners. And, it's free.

There was a recent update to the Android app for Google Translate that makes it even more useful. You can now translate text in images using the smartphone's camera. Open Google Translate app, click the camera icon to take a picture, and then highlight what you want translated, and viola, translated. This is very useful for ESL/ELL students, as well as travelers. Some other updates include the ability to specify preferred dialects for speech input, instant, as-you-type translation similar to the Google Translate web interface, and improvements to the way Japanese characters are handled
