Safari Webpage Translation Feature Reportedly Working in More Countries

Apple is rolling out its Safari webpage translation to more countries. According to 9to5Mac, users in Brazil and Germany have reported gaining access to the feature for the first time.

Apple introduced Safari's machine translation earlier this year when it debuted iOS 14 and macOS Big Sur at WWDC in June.

The feature allows users to translate the language of websites viewed in Apple's native browser; it can translate Arabic, Chinese, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish.

Based on Thursday's report, Apple appears to have remotely enabled the translate option for the two additional countries for users running iOS 14.1, iOS 14.2, and the macOS Big Sur beta and Release Candidate.

This is so pre-2010. It would be much better to have a system-wide translation feature that can be used on partial text everywhere, for instance in Books, in conjunction with a much expanded dictionary feature.

I'm not certain but it could be that it uses the same resources as the Translate.app

BTW, does macOS Big Sur include Translate.app?
No, they have activated a new translation engine.

Feel free to check something yourself instead of spreading opinions instead of facts (you are not a president).
The ability to transform questions into answers with the help of the brain is what distinguishes us from monkeys in many ways :).

Although this article screenshot is from the Spanish Government webpage, I'm based in Spain and this feature is still not available for me in MacOS Big Sur RC 11.0.1

Can't wait for other small step to my "google detox"

In Germany.
The feature is working on my iPhone which I just updated to 14.2. I’m deleting Microsoft Translator now. However, on Safari on Mac there’s nothing. I’m still on Catalina though. Just this and I can ditch Chrome.

Edit: Not showing up on my iPad either.

Wow!

Perhaps English isn't your first language.

I said, "I'm not certain but it could be". Hardly "spreading [my] opinions" rather asking a question hoping somebody with a brain would add clarity. Sadly, you are not that person.
You’re right, “I’m not certain but it could be” is hardly an opinion. Like you rightly said, it could be a language barrier. Being a native English speaker myself, I’ve had uncountable experiences here in Germany where something I said was completely taken out of meaning and context. In most of these cases I take my time to explain the ‘real’ meaning of whatever I said, IF the person is willing to hear that (which is an entirely different matter on its own).
Cheers buddy!
