How to do a camera translation

Camera translations work as follows:

  • Open Microsoft Translator
  • tap the camera icon
  • choose the from-language and the to-language
  • point the camera to the text you would like to translate and tap the camera icon

To translate a photo please do the following:

  • Open Microsoft Translator
  • tap the camera icon
  • choose the from-language and the to-language
  • tap the photo on the left of the camera icon 
  • select the photo you would like to translate

Camera translations work best when the camera is perfectly level and when there is enough contrast.

Also, please check if the from-language is available as a Camera Translations Language here: https://translator.microsoft.com/help/languages/
