Google has updated the Google Translate app for iOS and Android devices
The latest update offers powerful and impressive translation capabilities,

First, Google Translate offers instant translation using your camera to
recognize and to automatically overlay the translated text on the screen.
(this is the technology from Word Lens which Google acquired some time

Instant translation currently works for translation from English to and
from French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish

Note that the Google Translate app can still scan a photo taken from your
phone and to get a translation of it in 36 languages.

What's more interesting is the ability for your phone to capture audio from
two speakers and have Google Translate speak a translated version so two
speakers speaking different languages can communicate back and forth. See

This follows the release of Skype's Translator Preview last month (see
However Skype Translate Preview is not generally available (you have to
register and you then may be offered to participate) ; Google Translate is
available now for iOS and Android phones
