How can I use the camera in my device to translate and define text and scan QR codes?

Last Update date : Oct 01. 2020



You can use the camera in your Galaxy S5 to scan text and provide dictionary definitions and translations. 


Open the app by going to Apps > Optical Reader.


Select Auto Mode by pressing the mode icon on the top-left. Position the camera above words, contact information or QR codes you wish to act on.

Tap the S Translator icon to translate selected words to another language of your choosing. If you select the same language in both selection boxes the device will offer dictionary definitions of your selected words.
