    Load app, point camera at foreign words, observe translation on screen.

    We have been using this for the last couple of months for when in France and Germany, basically :
    Load App,
    Make sure languages selected are as you want e.g. German to English,
    Then point camera at the sign and hold steady translation appears on the screen.

    It is no good for pages of text, best for short phrases or sentences, translations can be a bit odd, but generally works well.

    Don't you also have to select the languages you are translating from/to first?

    I presume this needs a data connection ( wifi or what ever ) ?
