Translate Speech: Siri Speaks Several Languages | iOS 17 Guide

You can ask Siri to translate English into another language.

Simply say “Translate” before the phrase or word you want Siri to translate and end the sentence with a language, e.g. “to French.” Similar phrasings work, too – try asking “how do you say X in Spanish,” for example.

Siri will respond out loud with the translation, utilizing the power of the built-in Translate app. It’s great when traveling if you’re trying to communicate to someone that doesn’t speak your language.

Unfortunately, it won’t translate back into English. For that, you’ll need to launch the Translate app on your device.

Compatible languages include Mandarin, French, German, Italian, and Spanish, and more. The list expands every year.
