Google Translate Selected Text

Open selected in Google Translate web app


This shortcut opens text selected in the Google Translate web page via the Share Sheet. Installation of the Google Translate iOS app is not required. I use this as a language learner for saving words and text snippets in Google Translate and export them into Anki.

Additional Notes Based on the URL used, the shortcut will auto detect the source language of the text selected.

The default target language (i.e. the language that the text will be translated into) is English. This can be changed by replacing all instances of ‘en’ in the URL with the ISO 639 two letter code abbreviation for your desired language (fr for French, es for Spanish, de for German, etc.).
