Translate Voice with Google Translate on iPhone 6
Edited by Grimm, Rushell, Anonymous, Eng
You are watching VisiHow, and today we are going to teach you how to use Google Translate to translate spoken words on your iPhone 6.
To start with, we're going to press the lock screen button on the right side of the phone.
A single press will take us to the lock screen.
From there, you can swipe across the screen from left to right.
This will bring you to the screen where you can enter your pass-code.
However, if you are like me, you can just press that beautiful thumb, finger, or whichever of your digits you used to set up for the fingerprint scan, and you'll be on the Home screen.
When you're on the Home screen, you will find the Google Translate application.
If you do not have it on the Home screen or another screen, we do have a tutorial that explains how to divide icons around, and we also have a tutorial that explains how to install the applications. Some of you may be unaware of this, but when you download and install the Google Translate application or almost any other application that is not a stock iPhone application, it will not appear on the Home screen at first. Stock iPhone applications will include things like Weather, Help, Mail, Facetime, etc. will always install on the Home screen. Applications like Google Translate will always install to a second screen.
What we need to do is press the Google Translate icon.
That will open up Translate.
The very first thing you want to do is make you are going to be translating in the correct language.
In my case that will be English.
Tap on the language at the top to be sure it is set correctly and change it if needed.
The second thing that you want to do, before you do anything else, is go over to settings by tapping the icon at the bottom right corner of the screen.
We want to tap to go into Speech input.
Then you go under Dialects, and you tap on English.
You make sure that your English setting is English (US).
I'm an American, and I don't speak like an Englishman. I can pretend to, but I don't. I can't natively speak like that, which means my spoken words will not be translated properly.
Click on the left facing arrow at the top left of the screen to go back to the Settings screen.
Then press the Home icon at the bottom left to go back to the application's main screen.
We discussed earlier the handwriting application.
We will discuss cameras later.
Now that we have set our English (US) dialect, and we are definitely translating from English, we're going to tap on the microphone in the center for the voice part of the application.
As soon as I tap on the microphone, it's going to start recording my voice, and it's going to translate it into Russian, as this is the language I have it set up to translate to.
Scroll down on the screen a little ways, and we have Hi. The Russian translation is stated beneath it.
Let's see how we can do using the voice, so we're going to press on the microphone.
After saying "Hi," the Russian translation appears near the middle of the screen.
How cool is that?
Now we can close the current window by pressing the x at the top right.
I'm going to try something a little more complicated.
I'll scroll down to one of the longer phrases.
We are looking for "How are you today?" Let's try that.
Let's press on the microphone again.
"How are you today?"
Look at that!
The Russian translation that appears near the middle of the screen is perfect. I got a perfect translation from my incredible voice.
Now, let's get a little crazy and try this in Chinese.
We determined that the two words together were hao.
We're going to be translating from Chinese into English.
Ready? We'll press the microphone.
"Hao." Look at that, it says Okay.
This is how you use Google Translate to do amazing things, and impress your friends, and generally perfectly translate anything you want to translate when you're at home.
Realistically, when you get out in public, hao might have turned into something else that you might not want to be saying, especially if you're trying to impress someone with your grasp of the Chinese language, and they think you speak more than you do. Let's give a quick press to our Home button at the bottom of the phone. This takes us back to the home screen. From here, you can do anything you would like to do.
However, we are going to move on to teaching you how to translate photos using the Google translate application.
So this concludes our tutorial on translating your voice. Make sure you check out the rest of our series, and hopefully you'll have a great day. I personally look forward to seeing you in our next set of videos and reading your comments about how wonderful my voice is and what a great Chinese speaker I am, and Russian. I mean, I could go on. Thanks to Google Translate, I'm just Mr. Awesome. Have a great day.
