Bing Translator app for Windows 8 released, translate text via your webcam

Bing Translator

Rolling out now to the Windows Store is the new Bing Translator App. With support for over 40 different languages, the app lets you translate content you read, type, or even capture via your webcam! Users can even install offline language packs to use the app offline.

“The Bing Translator App for Windows is your companion when you need to quickly translate what you are looking at. Use your camera or just type the text you want to translate. Text and camera translation work offline with downloadable language packs, so you can get the power of Bing Translator on-the-go, even when you don’t have an Internet connection,” the app description reads.

The camera translation feature can translate signs, menus, newspapers, or any printed text using your device’s camera. This app is similar to its counterpart on Windows Phone. Hit the download link below to snag the app from the Windows Store, for both Windows 8 and Windows RT.
