This feature called ‘Word Lens’ has now spread to the newly added seven languages along with Hindi. To get started, point the camera towards any English text and you will see the translated text in your language on your screen, even if you don’t have an active Internet connection. Since Word Lens works in offline mode, you need to download the language pack in order to use the feature.
