Samsung added S Translator and an Optical Reader in the latest version of TouchWiz on the Galaxy S 4. S Translator is essentially a lesser version of Google Translate, and it allows you to get language translations via text or by the spoken word. It translates Brazilian Portuguese, English (UK), English (US), French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Simplified Chinese, and Spanish. If you’re in another country, you could literally have a conversation with someone even if they don’t speak the same language as you. S Translate also has predefined phrases for you to use and allows you to favorite some translations that you might use more often for quick access.
The optical reader also serves as a translator by scanning written text on documents. It can also scan QR codes as well as create a new contact based on information from a business card.
Hit the break for a better understanding on how both of these features work and how they may help you in real life situations. Don’t forget to check out our other Galaxy S 4 guides, which cover everything from the latest TouchWiz additions to the camera application.
