Citingmedia 9to5Mac, Apple plans to embed a translator in the Safari browser and fully support Apple Pencil. Siri on iOS is now able to translate words and phrases, and now Apple plans to expand its translation capabilities across the system. In an early build-up of iOS 14, Safari built-in translators that allowed users to translate pages without the help of any third-party apps or services.
This translation feature may provide a separate option for each site, and users can choose to translate automatically. Safari detects the appropriate language to translate the content correctly. In addition, users can switch between the original text and the translation without reloading the page.
Safari is just the beginning, andmedia 9to5Mac also found that translation is being tested in other applications, such as the App Store, suggesting that Apple is interested in extending the feature to the entire system. In this case, if the user’s app description and comment is written in another language, iOS translates the descriptions and comments for those apps.
In addition, all translations will be processed locally through the nerve engine, so they should work even without a network connection, and no data will be sent to Apple. 9to5Mac also learned that iPad OS 14 may fully support Apple Pencil input on the site, not only to scroll and touch, but also to use all its features for drawing and tagging in Safari and other browsers.
