Goggles Translate (OCR)

Fresh off the press, Google just announced that the latest update to its Google Goggles for Android (1.6+) introduces a Translate feature.

The app currently supports the following input languages:

  • English
  • French
  • Italian
  • German
  • Spanish

and can translate them to a much bigger set of languages which I just jotted down (from the app itself):

  • Afrikaans
  • Albanian
  • Catalan
  • Danish
  • Dutch
  • English
  • Finnish
  • French
  • Galician
  • German
  • Icelandic
  • Irish
  • Italian
  • Norwegian
  • Portuguese
  • Spanish
  • Swedish

Google promised support for more Latin based languages soon, with non-Latin based languages coming after.
