Bing's two-column, sliding language picker is significantly easier to use than Google Translate's old-school drop-down menus.

Augmented-reality translations

Point your camera at legible text written in the specified input language and Bing Translator will overlay its translations right on your screen (if you look closely at this screenshot, you can see the text underneath that's being translated).

Offline support

With Bing Translator, you can download any of five different language dictionaries and get instant translations while on the go, even without an active data connection. This is a feature that Google Translate users have long been pining for.
