Microsoft Edge for iPhone and iPad is ready to take on websites written in languages other than your native tongue with its latest update. Rolling out now, the update brings instant page translation into the fold, along with the usual smattering of bug fixes and performance improvements.
Here's a quick look at the full release notes:
The translation feature, which relies on Microsoft's relatively robust translation tech, is pretty straightforward. After installing the update, it will be turned on by default in settings, but you can toggle it off at any time. While toggled on, any time you visit a website in another language, you'll see a pop-up at the bottom of the screen that asks you if you'd like to translate the page to your native tongue. Once you'd agreed, you'll then receive the option to look at the website in its original language, and Edge will allow you to set it to always translate websites in that language without asking.
The update is rolling out now as part of Microsoft Edge version 42.11.4, which began rolling out on March 2. If you want to give page translations a shot for yourself, you should be able to grab this update via the Apple App Store now.
