Travel apps for translating

Google Translate

Handy if you unexpectedly have to go to the hospital abroad and want to be sure you understand each other.

Google Lens

That menu that is only written in the local languageโ€ฆ Are you going to type that into Google Translate? No, just point your camera at the text with Google Lens, and there's your translation! Google Lens is a separate app but is also part of Google Translate and the Google search app. Just click on the camera and translate.
