Nokia designs handset that can translate Chinese
Nokia is set to take the confusion out of trying to decipher foreign languages as it tests a new technology called Shoot to Translate.
The manufacturer has made a prototype mobile that can translate written Chinese words into English. Text is captured with the camera and then the handset translates the word into English.
The manufacturer has also been testing a technology called Point & Find. Touted as ‘an exciting new way to discover more about your surroundings’, the technology allows users to take a picture of their surroundings to get real-time information about what they are looking at from the internet.
