Apple provides system-wide translation features through Siri, via the Safari browser and in a new iPhone app, called Translate. Regardless of the method, translating one language to another takes advantage of the same underlying technology.

The Translate app and the Safari translator both support these languages:

  • Arabic
  • Chinese (Mandarin, Simplified)
  • English (US & UK)
  • French (France)
  • German (Germany)
  • Italian (Italy)
  • Japanese
  • Korean
  • Portuguese (Brazil)
  • Russian
  • Spanish (Spain)

The Safari translator Safari automatically appears when visiting a webpage in a supported language. The browser displays a translate icon in the address field, which you can click to have the whole text on the webpage replaced inline with its translated version whilst keeping the layout intact.
