Google Translate updated with live translation | Android and Me. If you thought real time language translation was the stuff of science fiction, and that Uhura was the only person who could do it, with the aid of a starship computer, think again. Google has gotten pretty close. For 36 languages, just take a picture of text with WordLens, a Google app, and it will instantly execute the translation on your device. If you choose the languages being spoken, and tap the mic, it will then translate, in real time, all that is said, seamlessly moving back and forth between languages. Watch your phone for the update, rolling out over the next few days. Translate that.
