DeepL 1.5 for iPhone and iPad: Camera function for instant translations

In May we have reported about itthat the excellent “DeepL” translator is now also available as an app for iPhone and iPad. Since then there have been some updates for the iOS and iPadOS app from DeepL, most recently to version 1.5. This has a function that has made the Google Translator very popular: the translation of camera content or text captured by the camera. Overall, the range of translations extends from DeepL on the iPhone and iPad now on entered texts, documents, voice input, photos and live translations of the camera image (without having to take a photo).

How do I get DeepL 1.5 on my Apple device?

Do you want to use the changes shown and, in addition to text or spoken content, also translate photos, documents and camera content with DeepL? Then a look at the App Store can be worthwhile. Because with me there was z. B. no automatic update of the app from version 1.4 to version 1.5, although I activated the automatic update of apps and was in the WLAN. But then I found the “Update” button in the App Store and after a few seconds I was able to use the new functions of the app. A small note on this: Unfortunately, the live translation is not yet available for all languages.

After the app has been updated to DeepL 1.5, text and voice input will also be available for translation of camera content, photos and documents. When the function is activated, the camera image is shown in the lower third of the display. In the short test, individual characters and entire texts were recognized equally well.

DeepL App also in version 1.5 without offline translation

The new functions are super-practical and the DeepL translator itself is a favorite when it comes to translating not just individual words or phrases, but entire sections of text. It's just a shame that the transfer from one language to the other does not take place locally. That would not only mean a bit more data protection, but also mean that the app could be used without WiFi or mobile data. Hopefully the developers of the DeepL App for iOS and iPadOS will submit the offline translation with one of the upcoming versions. Then the offer is which you can read more about here, Perfect.

Despite the new and super-practical functions, version 1.5 of the DeepL mobile app still does not offer any offline translation. Only with this, however, can it become a clear favorite among all translator apps.

      Hello Uwe,
      have you possibly chosen a language for which the feature has not yet been activated (e.g. Japanese)? That could be the reason.
      Best regards
      John

    I also miss this symbol for using the camera. IOS 15.1 is installed on IPHONE 8 and DeepL version 1.5.

    Is there a solution to the problem.
