    Found a great app to translate signs in different languages into English. It does several languages. You just open the app, point the camera at the sign and it translates the printing on the fly. For some reason, the app (Word Lens) isn't available at the store but you can get it here:

    We don't allow links to random downloads in the forum. Your post has been edited accordingly.

    Also, Word Lens no longer exists in the Play Store because Google acquired them several months ago (at least). This functionality is now a part of Google Translate. They actually just updated it with some more languages.

    I never knew about the photo translate capability. It certainly will come in handy for me here in Thailand.
