Lingual Jailbreak Tweak Allows Siri to Translate to Over 35 Languages

Lingual Jailbreak tweak gives Siri the power to translate to over 35 languages hands free, making it much easier to communicate with others on the fly.

Lingual is a Cydia tweak for Jailbroken iPhone (how-to guide here) that allows Siri to translate spoken words into over 35 languages! Being that Siri is hands-free, this means that you can speak words and phrases and let Siri do the rest – no more having to type words manually into translation apps like Google Translate.

Lingual uses Bing’s Translation API to convert speech into text, the text written translated into the desired language.

To use Lingual, all you have to do is say to Siri: ‘‘translate [word or phrase] to [language]’’ or ‘‘what’s something in [language]’’.

For example, in the image below I asked Siri to “translate love you long time to Korean.”

It worked like a charm as you can see. It’s a much easier and more convenient to use than Google Translate because you can do by speech recognition alone.

Lingual supports the following languages:

  • Arabic
  • Bulgarian
  • Catalan
  • Czech
  • Danish
  • German
  • Estonian
  • Finnish
  • French
  • Dutch
  • Greek
  • Haitian
  • Hebrew
  • Hindi
  • Hmong Daw
  • Hungarian
  • Indonesian
  • Italian
  • Japanese
  • Korean
  • Lithuanian
  • Latvian
  • Norwegian
  • Persian
  • Polish
  • Portuguese
  • Romanian
  • Spanish
  • Russian
  • Slovak
  • Slovene
  • Swedish
  • Thai
  • Turkish
  • Ukranian
  • Vietnamese
  • Simplified and Traditional Chinese

Lingual requires the installation of the AssistantExtension tweak which is also available in the Cydia store, and like Lingual, also FREE. Once you jailbreak your iPhone open up the new Cydia app that appears on your Springboard and search for it.

If you want to give Siri more functionality you’ll want to also check out SiriSports and Sireet.

Stay tuned.
