CamTranslator: Translations with Your Android Camera Snapshots

There are many translators for Android and the truth is that most meet very well its mission. However all of them have similar, but not less effective operation, introducing the word, select the language and click on translate.

Today we will speak of CamTranslator a translator that is, on the one hand as useful the rest of apps from the Android Market and which also allows us to make the translations with our camera. A way different, effective and that sometimes it can be very useful.

CamTranslator us invites to try a new way to perform translations with a system of recognition of texts through the Chamber. At the moment the application recognizes up to fourteen languages and translations of texts to use Google Translate.

In the tests we have done the recognition of texts worked without problems in printed texts on paper, screens and monitors. With handwritten texts cost you a little more and depends on calligraphy. In the captures of images that accompany this post you can see its effectiveness.

A very useful option is to perform translations both live without needing to make a photo as a snapshot. In this way we can keep it and subsequently translate word by Word.

At the moment the application only translates single words and not is able to translate complete phrases for which its use is limited to quick reference and questions of vocabulary primarily.

Translations, as we have already mentioned, are made from Google Translate so it is necessary to have a connection to the Internet. We can store words that we use regularly in the cache in an option that has CamTranslator to add vocabulary.

Although priori CamTranslator It may be the typical application that applies only to show off in front of friends the truth is that, from my point of view, is one very useful solution for those looking for a different translator and to also translate words from languages that your keyboard does not recognize: Chinese, Japanese…

You can find the application in the Android Market in a way free. If you want to remove the advertising, which is not much, and add more capacity to the vocabulary have a license payment for 3.22 euros.
