Apple introduced a new Translate app in iOS 14 to translate text natively on iPhone and iPad. The app offers real-time translations between 11 different languages: English, Mandarin Chinese, French German, Spanish, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Arabic, Russian, and Portuguese.
The Translate app, which works offline, offers a simple interface that allows you to select a language to translate to and from and then input the text you need to translate. The app also speaks translations out loud so you can understand the pronunciation or play it to someone else. Here’s a simple guide you can follow to translate text on iPhone and iPad
