App-driven life: Google translate foreign language signs

Google translate has a feature that can analyze an image and translate text instantly. Why? Because by the time your car passenger finds "interdiction de traverser le pont" in their French-to-English phrase book, your car is already filling up with river water. 


If Google Maps doesn't tell you the bridge is out, at least Google Translate can guarantee you don't mistake danger for an invitation.

For several years, the Google Translate application has been a quick and generally accurate way to decipher foreign languages on the go. Type a sentence, and Google can translate it into any of 65 languages within a few seconds (assuming you have a solid Internet connection). If you want to speak into the phone instead of typing, Google has you covered in any of 17 languages.
