Hey All,

I've been under the weather this season, real tired (Work\Sleep\Work\etc...), so I have not been able to post and read as much as I wanted to, but I did find this Update (At least to My iPhone) and it could be Super Useful.

So early this season I found that if I used the Google Translate App I could take a picture of a French word or words with the app and it would translate it and display it as plain text, even off the TV (News or Weather).

We were reading (Looking at the Pictures) a Menu and I said "Hey, try this...". Pulled out the phone and app and there must have been an update, as soon as I put the phone over the menu it instantly translated the menu using a "Virtual Reality" interpretation. This was to the point it translated the text on the menu\background\paper\etc.

I've included pics of the menu. Both are the exact same menu.

The steadier you hold it the better the translation. No, it is not perfect. I did download the French Language language pack for the app a long time back, dont know if that is still needed.

It is a FREE App.

Wow, Technology!

according to the menu it is also cooked and burned, hope this is not one of those places play hard has been telling us to just trust the chef!!

I would trust Play Hard.... but maybe confirm what the menu at least says.

Like I said, the longer and steadier you hold it the better. (Sounds weird...)

Even if its literal, you maybe able to ID Pigeon Liver Sauce before you order it. Cooked and Burnt!

 

LOL

I can not think for a minute why the salmon crossed the road 😁 so Pave’ in this instance means Filet. Literal translations are sometimes pretty funny. 👍🏻

About the app: I checked to see if it's April 1st, and that's a no.

Very interesting, I'll definitely have to try to that. There have been a few instances where the the wait staff barely spoke English and couldn't even explain it to us. Thanks!
