Japan Goggles uses visual recognition to translate text on the fly.

Some mobile app translators can be inaccurate, never providing the precise result you need and often leaving you hanging when you don’t quite know a language to begin with. However, with Japan Goggles and China Goggles two iPhone apps created by LucSens, a user’s camera converts Japanese or Chinese characters into English (unlike Google’s app) with visual recognition technology. Developed by Iulian Florea, a former student of Japanese who became interested in devising a simpler way to translate kanji characters on the go. The app is similar to Google Goggles and Word Lens which also work by translating text captured by the phone’s camera, but the major difference is Japan Goggles works entirely without an Internet connection.

Watch the video below for a demonstration.
