Thus, if you are also keen to know how to use this Translate App on your iPhone, then you may continue reading this tutorial line by line.
Here is how to use the Translate App
First of all, you need to find out the location of the “Translate” application. To find it, you need to launch “Spotlight” by swiping downwards on your Home screen. Here, enter “translate” in the search bar and select the “Apple Translate” icon from the search results.
Note: if you cannot locate the app, then your device might be running on an older version of iOS.
As soon as the “Translate” opens, an interface will appear on your screen. Then, you need to tap on the “Translate” button available at the bottom of the screen.
Using the given buttons, you need to choose the language pair. Using the first button, you can choose the language from which you wish to translate the text/voice input. And, using the second button, you will need to choose the language you want the output in.
As soon as you click on the languages button, you will see a list of languages to choose from. Choose the desired language in both the options and then hit the “Done” button.
Now, it time to type or speak the phrase you want to translate. You can also use the on-screen keyboard to enter the source input. After entering the text in the source language, click on the “Go” button. To enter the source input through your voice, select the “Microphone” icon.
Now, the results will appear on your screen beneath the source input.

Once you have successfully translated the sentence, you will see a toolbar below the translated results. Using this toolbar, you can make the desired changes in the search result.
- Press the ‘Favorite’ icon (looking like a star)present below the search result. This will add it to your ‘Favorites’ list.
- Press the ‘Dictionary’ icon (looking like a book) to turn on the Dictionary mode. Further, you can tap on each word to get its meaning.
- You can also get its definition by tapping on the word.

This option helps when you want someone else to listen to what you are trying to speak. This lets him know what your intentions are and what you are asking for. This comes in handy when you need to buy something in a different country and want the local resident to know of your intentions.
