Looks like there is one reason why we should buy a Windows Phone. Microsoft has updated the Bing Translator app, which can be downloaded for free in the Marketplace. The update now enables users to point their cameras at any text you cannot read (say, the Japanese road signs) and a proper translation pops out in front of the foreign text, as you can see in the first photo.

Another trick this app offers is how users speak phrases into their Windows Phone, which will then be translated into a foreign language of choice complete with audio. This feature certainly beats reading translations really slowly when all you want is to reach the bus station.

But the best part of the update is the app’s offline capabilities, which comes in handy if your smartphone could not find network connection in foreign lands. Simply download a language pack of choice, including English, Spanish, German, French, Italian, and Simplified Chinese.
