If you don’t already know, with the release of iOS 14, Apple has added an all-new Translation app to make real-time language translation easy and convenient on iPhone. This service competes with offerings from Google, Microsoft and other third party providers. Of course, like any other translation application or service, an Internet connection is usually used to work. But Apple has made this optional. If you do not want to connect to the company’s servers, you can use a special “on device” mode for the translator to work offline. To do this, you must first load the dictionaries of the selected languages.
