How to Use Siri to Translate Language on HomePod

Have you ever tried using Siri Translation on HomePod? If no, I'd recommend you to put your hands on this cool feature as it can play a vital role in making you multilingual.


Slowly but steadily, Siri is getting smarter, thanks to the addition of several new skills. With iOS 11, Apple introduced “Siri Translate languages” feature, which can turn out to be a boon for travellers. Better still, it also works seamlessly on HomePod.

So, whether you are trying to learn a foreign lingo for business purpose or aspire to be multilingual, you can use Siri to translate many languages like German, Italian, Spanish, French, Japanese and Russian on your HomePod. The virtual assistant is ever ready to help you out. Let’s get started!

How to Translate Languages on HomePod Using Siri 

To find out whether or not Siri Translation supports your language, check out this Apple Support page.

To get going, all you have to do is invoke Siri using the “Hey Siri” phrase on your HomePod and then speak the command. For instance,

  • “How do you say ‘Who are you?’ in French?”
  • “Translate ‘Hi’ to Japanese?”
  • “What’s the word for ‘See You’ in Spanish?”
  • “Translate ‘How do you do’ to Japanese?”

Siri will quickly provide an accurate translation in vocal form.

Sticky Note: This feature works pretty much the same way on iPhone or iPad. Aside from offering the translation in vocal component, Siri also offers translation in text form on an iOS device. Besides, you will be able to replay the vocal component just by tapping on the tiny play button as well.

That’s pretty much it!

Over to You…

Now that you know the trick; play around with it to master your favorite lingo. From what I can see, it can come in very handy when traveling to foreign countries. You can take advantage of this useful skill to communicate with local people.
