What is Pocket Translator?

Pocket Translator is a jailbreak tweak that adds a CC module to the Control Center with quick access to a lightweight mobile translator floating window. The tweak comes with support for multiple translation engines: Google Translate, Bing Translate, DeepL, and Baidu Translate.

Once installed, the Pocket Translator tweak adds a new preference pane to the Settings app, from where you can enable the tweak and select the translation engine you would like to use. Pocket Translator was released as a free tweak, and it's compatible with iOS 14.0 to iOS 15.0.

To run the tweak, it's required to enable the pockettranslatorcc module in Control Center and add it to included controls. A new button will be added to CC from where you can quickly lunch the Pocket Translator window that can be freely moved on your device screen.
