How to translate web pages with Safari on iPhone and iPad.

Not only did iOS 14 introduce a real-time Translate app but it gave Safari the long overdue ability to translate web pages as well.

Apple News open story in Safari

Apple News delivers a variety of stories from different sources in one app. Stories can be saved in the Apple News app, however this means they must be reread from within the app. Stories can be opened directly in Safari for bookmarking or sharing with a direct link.

If you use Safari as your goto web browser on your iPhone or iPad you probably know that, if need be, you can change the font size on web pages, choose to view their desktop website rather than mobile (because sometimes mobile versions don't have all the options that desktop versions have) or choose to use reader mode to declutter the page.

To do this you will want to set your internet downloads to automatically save locally, which is easy to do with Safari's new download manager and you will want to make sure you save email attachments locally. Also, anything you have stored in iCloud you can always move to a local folder in the Files app.
