Edited by Grimm, Colette Cole, Eng, Crystal

You are watching VisiHow and today we are going to show you how to clear your translation history and reset your favorites, using the Google Translate application on an iPhone 6.

Steps

  1. 1
    To start with, we're going to quickly press the "lock screen" or "home button" and that's going to open our phone up to the home screen
    .

    Once the phone is open, slide across to the right and then enter your PIN, or use something more secure like your fingerprint
    .

  3. 3
    When that's done, you're going to be taken to your home screen, where you should already have the Google Translate application installed
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  4. 4
    If you want to have it on another screen, that's entirely up to you, however, I strongly recommend that when learning a new application, or using it for the early part or especially when following online tutorials, to keep it on your home screen
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  5. 5
    What we're going to do is the application, which is the Google Translate button
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  6. 6
    It's going to open that up
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  7. 7
    As you can see here, I've got all kinds of crazy texts that have been entered in from my earlier attempts
    .
    Some of them failed while trying to learn and set up some of the languages, which are rather difficult to enter, such as trying to write Chinese with my finger, which was, I must confess, very frustrating.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  8. 8
    What we want to do now is just take your finger and just swipe
    .
    It can be done in either direction. That will make it just go away. It's kind of like a game where you dodge the words you don't understand. Which in most people's cases is going to be almost all of them.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  9. 9
    Which may seem a bit silly, but you see I have the right word for "good" in Russian
    .
    I can pronounce it well enough for most taxi drivers to understand me and the occasional girl, which is all I've really ever used it for.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  10. 10
    If you want to reset your favorites, you can tap the star and remove it from the favorites
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  11. 11
    If I go back to home and I turn it back on, when I go back the favorites, you can see that it is back on the favorites
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  12. 12
    I can also turn it off from the starred list
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  13. 13
    It's not going to go away, and I can't delete it or do anything else with it in the favorites menu, other than either tap it to be a favorite or actually tap it itself to open it and see what it is
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  14. 14
    When I'm done with it
    .
    I just press the "x" to get me out of there, you can see that it remains unchecked.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  15. 15
    If I tap back on favorites, it's still also unchecked
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  16. 16
    Now, if I want to delete it, I have to get rid of it
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  17. 17
    This is to help you from accidently deleting something that you may have wanted to keep
    .
    So you tap on favorites, and you can see that they are still in there. Even though they have been deleted from the starred list, they still remain in the favorites.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  18. 18
    This is a great way to you to get rid of the things you don't want cluttering up your translation area
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  19. 19
    Here you have the ones you want to keep in the starred section
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  20. 20
    If you are conducting a business in a foreign country, or you're doing anything in a foreign country that involves 2 different types of people, you will want to separate the conversation
    .
    For example: you're probably not going to talk to your business partner the same way you talk to your girlfriend, you are trying to explain a business concept to your partner, you want to do it here on the home screen.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  21. 21
    The favorites screen is where you'll probably have some kind of comment, telling your girlfriend what beautiful eyes she has, or how you're looking forward to going shopping with her
    .
    Your business partners might not think that's really cool.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  22. 22
    The point is, this is a great way to keep your chat window free and yet you can quickly move over to the favorites
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  23. 23
    If you want to get rid of a favorite, go back to the home screen
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  24. 24
    Now go back to favorites
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  25. 25
    As you can see, it's gone
    .
    You don't have to delete it again.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  26. 26
    Last but not least, tap the home button
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  27. 27
    Then tap back on favorites
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  28. 28
    It's gone
    .
    No more favorite there.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
