One of the perks of using browsers like Chrome is that because it’s made with Google, it is also tightly integrated with Google’s other services like Translate. This means that whether you’re on your phone or computer, as long as you use Chrome, you can translate websites quickly and easily instead of relying on third-party extensions.
With the latest versions of iOS and macOS, Apple has decided to bake similar functionality into Safari, but oddly enough, the feature was only available in the US at launch. The good news is that according to multiple user reports, it seems that the translation feature of Safari is now being rolled out to more countries as we speak.
It seems to be enabled server-side which means that users don’t need to do anything on their end if they want to use the feature, but it also means that it is unclear who is getting it and how one can get their hands on it as well. Updating to the latest version of iOS 14.2 doesn’t seem to do the trick, so if you don’t see it yet, either you’re not in a region that the feature is available in, or you’ll just have to wait for it to eventually make its way to you.
