Steps

  1. 1
    To start with, we are going to need to unlock our phone.
    This is done by pressing the lock screen button. The lock screen button is on the right side of your phone. My thumb is now touching it. I am going to press that one time with my thumb. This will open my phone to the lock screen.

  3. 3
    ***I can cancel.
    It will simply go back to the lock screen and admire the beautiful.

  4. 4
    However, I am going to press with my thumb.
    Once I press the Home button with my thumb, I will then be taken to the main screen of my phone where I have already installed Google Translate. Should you need help or assistance with Google Translate, you will find everything you need in this tutorial or one of the other tutorials. For now, we are going to focus on photos though. To do that we need to start by opening Google translate. Let's give the icon a quick press.

  5. 5
    Google translate will open.
    You can see that I have been playing around with different languages and different translations.

  6. 6
    What we need to do now is translate a photo and that is done by pressing the photo application.

  7. 7
    Earlier, we discuss handwriting, which is this little quibble.

  8. 8
    We discuss voice which is this microphone icon.

    Then we have photos.

  10. 10
    Some of you may wonder why I started out this way and the real reason for that is that the vast majority of people attempting to learn or use a foreign language often so either through handwriting or voice.
    Photos are quite often just tutorials type thing or if you are one of those Facebook-stalkers types maybe trying to figure out if the picture behind the girl has hidden meaning. That is not really my thing though.

  11. 11
    Unlike you, say a photo, for instance, to translate an air bag sign or to quickly grasp the nuances of Spanish language, which I may not usually understand.
    Well, the same applies to Russian or any of the other languages that I, at least, in part speak. I may understand the language, but I also miss the odds and flow - or again, the nuances of a conversation or a particular bit of speech.

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  12. 12
    What I am going to do now is to make sure that I am set in Spanish and English because we are going to be using a Spanish operations manual here.

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  13. 13
    Let me take a picture of that and see what it does.
    Let's press the photo option.

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  14. 14
    This is going to open up.
    The photos are going to tell me that I need to point my camera at the text. So I am going take this operation manual and just going to move behind here and there we go. Now I do not know if you can see this but this is a real time photo translation that to me is one of the impressive things I have ever seen.

  15. 15
    Let's switch this to landscape mode so that I can give you a better idea of what I am talking about.

  16. 16
    We are now landscape mode.
    I am going to switch the camera a little bit for you - bear with me.

  17. 17
    I am going to be translating exactly as you can see hopefully on the camera.
    Do you see that? This is in Spanish, it is written in Spanish. "Descarga Del software y de la Guia de software"

    So I am going to put that right here on my camera.

  19. 19
    Now it says, "DISCHARGE OF SOFTWARE AND OF THE GUIDE OF SOFTWARE".
    Let's make sure you can look at that, nice and clear, because honestly in my opinion this is one of the coolest things Google has ever done. "DISCHARGE OF SOFTWARE AND OF THE GUIDE OF SOFTWARE".

  20. 20
    Now I am simply going to move this paper up and move it right in front of the cam.
    You can see that it says something very different than what it says when I put it on the phone.

    The Same section in the manual, I mean presumably because I certainly cannot read that.

    The program will quickly identify the text - as you can see with this little light boxes around it.
    Translate Photos and Images in the the Google Translate App on Your iPhone 6.mp4-canvas321 413564.jpg
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  32. 32
    Now, I can select what I want to select.
    So I simply slide my finger on the text and highlight it. It says, "Download software and software manuals".

  33. 33

  34. 34
    This tells me very easily what I need to know.
    Now, does any of you are wondering to yourselves "Hi, you know what Mr. Video Transcriber and Mr. Video Dude, this is interesting but what am I going to do with it?".

  35. 35
    Well, I just showed you the operations manual for a camera that I purchase outside of the United stated it did not come with English instructions.
    I had to pick them up separately. If I had this wonderful tool in time, I would not have needed purchase the separate documentation or materials to be able to utilize the full functionality of my camera. I, instead, could use the cool Google Camera button.

  36. 36
    As I mentioned previously you can use it in a landscape mode.
    I put the text on the camera. For those of you who know, this is not Chinese by the way.

  38. 38
    So I put this little Chinese thing in front of the camera.
    There we go. Text and Scan. Give a minute to identify the Chinese character.

    Now I will highlight what probably says "Start-up guide".
    There we go, "start-up guide". My Chinese is amazing or maybe I just read anyone of this languages including English.
