Google Translate’s App Now Instantly Translates Printed Text In 27 Languages | Word Lens

One of the most intense experiences you’ll ever have is visiting a country that speaks a language different than yours. There’s a host of tools you can use, but Google’s Translate product has leapfrogged just about everything out there over the years.

Its most handy, and impressive, tool is the six-month-old instant translation feature, using the goodies from the acquired Word Lens, that lets you point your camera at something written in another language, say a sign, and it’ll translate into your language with ridiculous accuracy in almost real-time.

Language Learning Service Duolingo Launches Its First iPhone App

Language Learning Service Duolingo Launches Its First iPhone App | Apps and Widgets for any use, mostly for education and FREE | Scoop.it
The language learning service Duolingo currently has about 300,000 active users and continues to grow rapidly.

 

Unlike other services like Rosetta Stone, Duolingo is available for free and teaches vocabulary, reading, writing, and speaking. Users progress through a role-playing game-like skill tree and earn skill points for every lesson they complete.

 

The cool idea behind Duolingo, of course, is that it’s not just about learning a language but also about translating. As students work their way through lessons, they start translating websites and documents. The company’s plan is to start allowing companies and individuals to upload their documents and to start charging them for those translations. In addition, the project also aims to make much of the web available in languages other than English, which still accounts for 50% of what’s written on the web.

 

Read more, very interesting:

5 Great Free iPad Translation apps

5 Great Free iPad Translation apps | Apps and Widgets for any use, mostly for education and FREE | Scoop.it

Using iPad for reading is something we all enjoy doing; but what about when reading articles in a foreign language ? It is highly probably that you will come across vocabulary you don't know.
