QTECH – When travelling to Costa Rica or in any foreign country, simply hold your smartphone camera up anything – a sign, a menu, a document, etc., even your computer screen –  and it will be instantly translated.

And the best part: it’s free, thanks to Google.

A few years back, a company called Quest Visual debuted a little app called World Lens. Now Google has bought it, made it part of Google Translate and made it available to everyone for free.

With the app, free at the  badge-ios Apple and badge-android Google stores, users can translate the world, App can translate between 103 languages by typing, 52 languages when you have no internet. Smartphone users, using the camera can translate text instantly in 29 languages.

The app isn’t perfect, it does make some mistakes, however, most of the time it will get the point across.

Because it isn’t known how long the app will remain for free on the stores, recommend that you pick it up as soon as possible, particularly if you travel internationally.
