With your mobile phone, you can scan an image containing text or select an image that you have already saved in your gallery, and then translate the text inside the image with the help of Google Translate.
You can use the Google Translate app to translate images on your iPhone, iPad or Android phone in two ways:
- One way to translate a photo is to point your camera at the photo and let the app scan it. If you have not already saved the photo in your gallery, you can use this method.
- If the image you want to translate is in the gallery of your phone, enter the image in Google Translate and do the translation.
