Google Lens apps now support offline translation
Google Lens is a scanner application launched by Google. With this application, we can scan the content through the mobile phone camera and edit the scanned content.
At present, both Google Lens need to be connected to the Internet, because in order to identify certain content, it needs to use a back-end server.
Of course, if you simply scan the file and turn it into a text, you don’t need to be so troublesome. If you want to translate directly through the camera, you still have to connect to the Internet.
What’s interesting is that Google seems to be preparing offline functions for the application. Users only need to download offline translation packages to analyze items without the Internet.
Google seems to be providing offline data download functions to some users. More specifically, it should download translation data similar to Google Translate.
Google Lens will automatically recognize when the camera is pointed at an object, and the user needs to take a photo to recognize the text or object and provide the corresponding translation.
This feature originally required users to connect to the Internet because Google needed to send data to the back-end server for analysis, but now Google also provides offline identification data.
The user needs to first select the language to be translated and the language used by himself in the language setting, so that the content can be quickly identified without connecting to the network.
Although it is more convenient to be able to use offline, the accuracy of offline recognition may not be as high as online, so it still depends on the user’s use environment.
