Instantly translate printed words from one language to another with your built-in video camera, in real time! (PLEASE NOTE: LANGUAGE PACKS MUST BE PURCHASED FROM WITHIN THE APP.) Use Word Lens on vacation, business travel, and just for fun.

Buy language pairs using in-app purchase:

Try out the included modes first so you can see the technology in action. These built-in examples recognize words in English, Spanish, and French.

  • Erase Words (digital white-out)

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.
  • Easy to use, like the regular camera
  • Look up translations by typing them in, too

Get 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 (or even further for iPod and iPad owners)

iOS device support:

  • iPhone 4S/4/3gs, iPod Touch with video camera, or iPad 2
  • Requires iOS 4.0 or later
  • iPhone 3gs, iPod Touch, and iPad 2 do not have zoom or flash light features
  • iPod Touch and iPad 2 cameras do not have auto-focus feature, which may result in reduced translation quality
