Translation is coming easily to Apple with the announcement of its latest translation app. Apple has announced a new first-party iOS app called, naturally, Translate, which works with 11 languages, no internet connection required.

The app is intended for use with speech or short written sentences, not to translate whole web pages or documents. The interface is simple, with a language selector, text field, and record button as well as a few extra widgets like favorites and a dictionary.

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.
