Google Lens for Android now can do offline translation

Google is finally providing support for offline translation in Google Lens on Android devices. The feature, which Google has been working on for nearly a year now, let users instantly do written text translation without the need for an internet connection.

What to do to receive the feature?

As reported by 9to5Google, offline translation support in Lens is rolling out to users through a server-side update. When receiving the update, users should see a new “Tap to download” prompt that highlights a new download button next to a majority of languages in the “Select language” screen.

Just need to tap on this button, users will download the respective language packages for offline translations. Most offline packages weigh approximately 44MB, so this new feature won’t take up a lot of space on Android devices, even if users get a bunch of them.
