3 - How to use Translator

Typing with Translations

Microsoft SwiftKey Translator is perfect for messaging (or any back and forth interactions). Take the following example that shows a conversation between two people. One of them is fluent in German, the other isn’t. Microsoft SwiftKey Translator can help by translating both as you write and read messages.

  1. Copy the text you need translated.  

  2. Microsoft SwiftKey Translator will detect the language used and display the translated text above your keyboard.  

  3. Tap the ‘X’ or hit ‘Reply’ to clear the translation bar. 

  4. Now begin to type your reply - you’ll see Microsoft SwiftKey Translator translates from the native typing language to German on the fly.


Picking a Language

Microsoft SwiftKey Translator does a good job of detecting languages used. But language options can be specified should you choose to change the input and output.


Tap onto an arrow to open the language picker menu.


4 -How to Translate offline

Microsoft SwiftKey Translator has been designed to work online, but if you download the Microsoft Translator app from the Google Play Store you’ll be able to use it offline too.

To use Translator offline

  1. Get Microsoft Translator from Google Play.

  2. Open Microsoft Translator.

  3. Tap the three dots in right-hand corner of your screen.  

  4. Select ‘Offline Languages’ from the menu.  

  5. Pick a language you’d like to use offline from the list. File sizes may be large so we’d recommend connecting to WiFi first.
