Worldictionary app uses Google and iPhone camera for instant translations

The Worldictionary app allows iPhone 3GS/4 owners with iOS 4.2 or later and a network connection to point the device’s camera at a word on a street sign, book, restaurant menu, online newspaper or website written in one of the supported languages and engage a View and Translate feature to get access to its meaning. The app automatically recognizes the language and works both as a dictionary and thesaurus.

The current version of the app translates between traditional Chinese, simplified Chinese, English, Japanese, Korean, French, Germany, Italian, and Spanish but is also said to be capable of taking any word from those nine languages and translating it into any of over 50 other languages.
