Google Goggles, searching and translating by taking a photo

An interesting new version of Google Goggles is now available!  This visual search application for Android phones, that allows you to search the web simply by taking a photo, has a new translating feature. Google Goggles users will now be able to point their phone at a word or phrase and if Goggles recognizes the text, it will give them the option to translate it. The system, with a margin of error, can translate text from English, French, Italian, German and Spanish into many more languages. This new feature could certainly be useful for reading a menu in a restaurant when abroad.
