To key text Inaugural for WWDC 2020 last June, Apple introduced all (or almost all) news that will come with iOS 14, a new kind of iPhone app that should be officially released next fall.
More new widgets, an upgrade in the Messaging app and news from Siri, with something new that has drawn viewers and presenters of the presentation: the new iPhone Translate app.
As you will understand by the name of the application (and if you do not understand it, you will soon have no problems with this new application), it is software A translation tool that lets you translate a conversation into up to 11 languages.
Best of all, you can use it without access to the Internet. If you are wondering how the Translate app will work when you install iOS 14 (or how it works if the beta is not installed), don’t miss this article.
How to translate phrases into the iOS 14 Translate app
Apple is focusing on the translate app experience in Siri, which means it will be more familiar with you. Basically, you have to say exactly what you want the app to translate to another language and your iPhone will do it for you.
By using your own smartphone in fact, the screen is divided into two halves: the top shows the languages you use, the translated phrase and its translation; at the bottom is a microphone button and text box if you choose to write it.
To get started, you’ll need to play on the microphone and say the sentence out loud or write the text in the corresponding space. After that, you’ll see the translation on the screen of your iPhone, which you can play back and forth for someone else to hear.
You can also use the app with a horizontal iPhone, which will make things easier. In this case, and as you can see in the image below, only the main text will be displayed.

Now, you can not use your iPhone horizontally by translating a simple phrase, but also in Training mode. In this case, all conversations you have with the other person will be displayed so that you can retrieve them quickly.
How to use the Translate Offline app
Usually, you will see that you want to use the Translation app in an area where there is no overlay or Wi-Fi connection. In these cases it will be very useful to use On-device mode, which allows you to download language packs so you can use the app without access to the Internet.
Use this mode and it’s a great way to keep your conversations completely confidential. For offline, this is not sent to Apple’s servers, which improve your privacy and security.
Currently, you can download the packets of languages in 11 supported languages: German, Arabic, Chinese, Korean, Spanish, French, English, Italian, German, Portuguese and Russian. Hopefully Apple will add more in the future.
Although it seems obvious, we remind you that you must have your iPhone, it must be connected to the Internet to download the language pack you need. Once done, you can now use it to translate phrases and dialogues
How to use the Favorites option in the Windows 14 Translate app
Apple has also included the opportunity to save phrases in ‘Favorites’, which can be very useful if you always use the same translation (for example, if you’re traveling to another country and you’ll be asking the same things again and again).
To save the phrase to ‘Favorites’ in the app, you’ll have to tap on the star icon below the translation. If you want to see what phrases you have saved, just tap on the ‘Favorites’ icon you will see at the bottom of the screen.
How to find the translation app on your iPhone
As we mentioned earlier in this article, the translation app will be introduced in a new version of the iPhone app, iOS 14, which will be officially available throughout the coming fall (with the new release IPhone 12).
It will be when all those with a compatible iPhone (iPhone 6s or later) update software and enjoy this benefit and other news. However, there is a way to use it today.
You must subscribe to the Apple Beta Software program, which explains everything you need to know in our text How to install the iOS 14 beta on your iPhone. Of course, you should know that the beta version is not yet complete and errors may occur.
