Translate will support English, Mandarin Chinese, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Arabic, Portuguese, and Russian, with others to come. You simply select a pair of languages and paste or record a snippet of text or audio. The translation will show up immediately.

There’ll be integration with Siri, as well as a side-by-side view. There are some other interesting features, such as the Translate app detecting what language is being spoken automatically.

Translate will be launched with iOS 14, and will outrightly be a Google Translate competitor.
