A good thing about Translate app is that it has a user-friendly interface. Moreover, selecting a language, typing the text, or saying what you want to translate is super easy to use. Not only that it listens to your voice, it speaks the translations out loud to help you understand the proper pronunciation or help understand someone who speaks a different language. 

Another exciting advancement in this feature is that in the ‘Conversation Mode’ in which it listens to both the languages and translates in real-time. So, are you ready to use the iOS 14 Translate app? Follow the steps below:

  7. As you talk with another person, tap the microphone when each person speaks. This will help your iPhone detect the language and translate the conversation for each person in their language. In order to hear the translation with the correct pronunciation tap the ‘Play’ button 
  8. In order to turn the display of the translation to full-screen, tap the ‘Expand’ button (two outward facing arrows). Now, it will be easier to read the translation.
