Along with introducing tons of new features including super cool Back Tap and Home screen widgets, Apple has also launched a brand new app called “Translate”. Given what the Translate app has to offer and the high accuracy it provides, Apple’s offering looks poised to take on Google Translate, which has long been an automatic choice for many. If you are ready to try this new app, let’s learn how to use Apple Translate app efficiently on iOS 14.
Use New Apple Translation App on iPhone Running iOS 14
Currently, Translate supports 11 language pairs, including English, Spanish, Russian, German, French, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin Chinese, Brazilian Portuguese, and Arabic. It also allows you to translate the language without an internet connection, thanks to a very useful offline mode.
When you don’t feel comfortable entering text using the on-screen keyboard, you can use the microphone to enter text via speech. Depending on your needs, you can even bookmark the translated text for later access. But what caught my eye in this app is the talk mode which allows users to freely communicate with a stranger which can come in really handy while traveling. Now that you have quite a few ideas for what this translation app for iOS has to offer, it’s time to get started!
