Translate language

Amplify iOS v1 is deprecated as of June 1st, 2024. No new features or bug fixes will be added. Dependencies may become outdated and potentially introduce compatibility issues.

Please use the latest version (v2) of Amplify Library for Swift to get started. Refer to the upgrade guide for instructions on upgrading your application to the latest version.

Amplify libraries should be used for all new cloud connected applications. If you are currently using the AWS Mobile SDK for iOS, you can access the documentation here.

If you haven't already done so, run amplify init inside your project and then amplify add auth (we recommend selecting the default configuration).

Run amplify add predictions, then use the following answers:

? Please select from one of the categories below

❯ Translate text into a different language

❯ Auth and Guest users

Run amplify push to create the resources in the cloud

Working with the API

Here is an example of translating text. In order to override any choices you made in regards to target or source languages while adding this resource using the Amplify CLI, you can pass in them in directly as parameters as shown below.

func translateText(text:String) {
Amplify.Predictions.convert(textToTranslate: text,
language: .english,
targetLanguage: .italian) { event in
switch event {
case let .success(result):
case let .failure(error):
func translateText(text:String) -> AnyCancellable {
textToTranslate: text,
language: .english,
targetLanguage: .italian
.sink {
if case let .failure(error) = $0 {
receiveValue: { result in

As a result of running this code, you will see the translated text printed to the console.
