Reverse translation on iPhone 0 Recommended Answers 6 Replies 9 Upvotes

Hello dear community,

I just found out, that the iOS app is missing one key feature that I was using long time on my Android device. The reverse translation. Is there any way to get it on my iOS (iPhone)? The option is not there, Version 5.29.59127. On my android with Version 5.29.0.RC05.247256929 the reverse translation is there.

Did I missed something?

Almost, that's that I mean. But on the "android screen" you see the option for reverse translation.
On the top screen with IOS device, the "arrows" only change the languages, but they don't actually change the words/sentences. So if I translate German to English, and push on arrow, my German sentence will still be there, but the setting would be changed to English. It does not make sense to me. See screenshots attached. The second screen, is after pushing on the arrows.

Thanks for sharing the screenshots. I just tried to replicate the issue with iOS 11.2.6 and GTranslate app version 5.29.59127 
 
I agree with you the Reverse Translate option doesn't exist on iOS while the above switch arrows feature doesn't change the text too. This holds true for Android devices as well. 
 
I'll try to escalate this issue to the Translate team.

I don't get it, this reversing of translation used to work on Android up to a few weeks ago, but now it doesn't anymore. Was there an update? It's an essential functionality, it allows you to translate from A to B and then back to A to check the meaning is still correct. Online translators are virtually useless without this option...
