Thread: 'Metaphrase' Lets You Easily Translate Text From Almost Anywhere in iOS

    Default 'Metaphrase' Lets You Easily Translate Text From Almost Anywhere in iOS


    If you ever find yourself in a situation where you needed to translate text on your iOS device from another language to your language, then you might find this new Action Menu add-on called Metaphrase by iOS developer JGTweaks very handy.

    With this add-on installed, you will be able to highlight any text that is in another language, and by tapping on the "Translate" button in the Action Menu that pops up, the text will be translated to the system language of your iOS device. A very clean pop-up shows up with the original text that you copied and pasted (it tells you the language), and then the translated text appears at the bottom of the pop-up. You can tap on the Done button to close the pop-up.

    The tweak adds a preferences pane to the Settings application where you can configure a couple of minor settings:



    The tweak uses the system language by default, but here, you can choose to translate to a different language instead. In addition, if you visit the Action Menu preferences pane, you can enable or disable Metaphrase on demand.

    If you want to give Metaphrase a try, it's available in Cydia's ModMyi repository right now for just 99. It does require iOS 7 to be installed, and if you don't already have Action Menu installed, it will be installed along with your Metaphrase download.

    Requirements: iOS 7.0-7.0.6, Action Menu

    Theoretically, it works on any app. However, for this to work in these apps, the one you should contact is Ryan Petrich. He makes Action Menu and if it works or not in an app, depends only on him.

    On a separate note Anthony, this works on iOS 6 as well...
