Way back in November 2009 I saw a YouTube video demo of this $1.99 app…

PicTranslator: iPhone App to Translate Written Text From One Language to Another

…and was impressed by that demo. Android users may be interested to learn that Google is working on bringing this ability (translate written text from one language to another) to their Google Goggles app for Android…

Integrating translation into Google Goggles

Google notes that it only translates from German to English at the moment and is not ready for release.

Note that there is a free Google Translate for Android that works with typed text right now. It provide text-to-text translation as well as text-to-speech.
