One of the main improvements that Safari has made, both in iOS and iPadOS 14 and in macOS Big Sur, is almost immediate translation of web pages. However, this function is in beta phase, and it has not been released in all countries.
A few days ago we were already telling you that it looks like Apple is expanding this new feature to new countries, and it looks like Europe is one of them. Today we woke up with this feature enabled in macOS Big Sur
We don’t know if Apple has this option enabled for all users, or if it’s only available to a few. In addition, currently on iOS and iPadOS 14 is not activealthough it could happen very soon.

This is how Safari translates
This translation is enabled in a top button that only appears on websites that the system can translate. Not all languages are supported, I was able to verify that the English, French, German and Chinese
To enable Safari translation, follow these steps:
- Go to Safari on your Mac and visit the web page you want to translate.
- In the top area, a new translation icon appears on the right in the search bar.
- If the page can be translated, the smart search field will say “Translation available”.
- Click the Translate icon and select the language.
It’s a really useful function, which, being integrated into the system, can help us read any web page almost instantly. In addition, Apple guarantees your privacy and does not share this data with anyone.
