Nokia Camera phone Language Translator

Nokia recently showcased a cool app for Nokia mobile phones. The app is named shoot-to-translate and it is capable of translating from Chinese to English by taking a photo of the Chinese text that you want to read.

This particular type of application is seriously handy for those frequent travellers who want to know what something says quickly with out having to open up a text book and hunt through and match up the complex Chinese symbols.

Although the application shows Chinese to English translation, I do not believe the creators have ruled out other language translation. Maybe international travel will someday become easier with this type of software.
