The Gboard app for iOS devices is finally getting support for translation features which the Android counterpart of the keyboard received 2 years ago. Powered by Google Translate, you can now use Gboard on your iPhone and iPad to conveniently translate text into other languages right from the keyboard.
The new feature is rolling out with Gboard version 1.42.0. You can download it from the App Store on your iOS devices.
To translate using Gboard on your iPhone, tap the G logo button in the top bar of the keyboard » select Translate from the expanded menu » select the language you want to translate into » then type your text and hit the Translate button on the keyboard to translate the text into the language you selected.
