Breaking Language Barriers with Google Translate and AR

Technology has evolved to the point where we can have our phones translating signs and text for us in foreign countries. Google Translate has an AR feature to translate words or sentences scanned with a smartphone camera. This handy tool is great for traveling abroad and new language learners. Do note that this requires downloading some packages within the app, which Google will prompt you to do.

Access this feature by downloading the app from the iOS or Google Play store, select the language you want to translate from to another, and click on the camera icon under the text field.

Align the text within the brackets.

Voila! It is translated right before your eyes.
