Gboard for iOS updated with translation support

17 March 2019

Google has released an update for its Gboard mobile keyboard for iOS, adding text translation support for all languages supported by Google Translate.

Although 103 translation languages sounds like more than enough, Gboard actually supports 685 languages for you to choose from for typing with, so the translation system remains relatively limited.

The translation feature has been available on Gboard for Android since 2017.

Google now has 70 iOS apps within Apple's App Store in Canada.

The selection menu shows the familiar iOS scroll menus - scroll through the output language menu to see all of the supported Google Translate languages. Apart from the instant translation support, there are no other changes in the latest version of Gboard. "Find translate in the suggestion strip or behind the Google button", explains Google. The app automatically detects the language you're typing in and lets you then select which language you want to translate to.

iOS users have just been treated to new Gboard features. The app had recently added support for Thai, Khmer, Lao, and Mongolian languages as well.
