Setting up shortcuts

Devices with iOS 12.0 and higher support Siri shortcuts. You can use them to activate app features directly. To do this, ask Siri to perform a specific action.

Use available commands for Yandex.Translate:
  • "Open dialog mode" — To translate a conversation with another speaker.
  • "Open photo translate" — To translate text in an image.
  • "Open voice input" — To enable voice input for translation.
  • "Translate copied text" — To translate text from the clipboard.
  • "Open collections" — To access your word collections.
  • "Learn words" — To access the words in your Favorites.

Devices with iOS 13.0 can also translate text using shortcuts. Just ask Siri to "Translate text", read it out loud, and specify the target language.

You can set up these shortcuts or create your own in the Shortcuts system app. For more information about how to use and create shortcuts, see the Shortcuts User Guide on the Apple website.
