Ever had a hard time reading menus and signs in foreign countries and fear that you’ll look dumb? Then worry no more as Word Lens is here to translate all the written phrases that you have a hard time reading in, say, Spain.

This translation tool for iPhone is so innovative and advance that it will solve all your language barriers in no time. All you have to do is point your iPhone at the written phrases in signs, menus and walls and the applications optical character recognition will recognize the text and translates it. Once the text translates the signs, it will show up in your iPhone’s screen and voila! You now know the meaning of the Spanish signs you see in the restaurant.

It translates a phrase word to word, but you have to take note that it might not translate a whole yet, so just limit it first to foreign phrases. And the good news about this is you don’t need an internet connection to use this application. It’s as easy as ABC.

Check how it works:

Word Lens itself is free, but when it comes to individual language packs, you have to pay $4.99 because only English to Spanish translation is available for free. This iPhone application will be available in iTunes tonight, so just wait for a few hours and this application will be yours.
