With the release of macOS 12 Monterey, Apple has finally brought system-wide translation to the Mac. You can try out the feature if you've installed the latest macOS 12 Public beta.

While Translate doesn’t offer loads of features, it does give you the essentials. One of these being your translation history. This lets you easily grab translations you’ve received before to reuse. And for translations you’ll never need again, like those silly ones you used just to play with the app, you can remove them from your history.

Here, we’ll show you how to view and delete your history in Translate on iPhone as well as turn past translations into favorites.

Being bilingual has its perks, but since not everyone has the luxury of knowing more than one language by heart, translation services often lend assistance to those wanting to know how to say something in another language.

Here to help with the aforementioned dilemma is Tranzlo, a newly released and free jailbreak tweak by iOS developer MiRO92 that aspires to make language translation much less of a chore on iPhones and iPads.
