"I didn't think something like this was possible, but I'm happy to say I've been proven wrong. This is a great app to have on your iPhone!"
- App Store Review

Millions of successful translations to date, it's the most popular translator keyboard on the App Store!


Transkey is a custom keyboard extension that translates the last sentence of any text field inside any app (such as iMessage, Messenger, Whatsapp, Skype, Email, and many more).

Transkey also works the other way around. Copy the text you can't understand and TransKey will show you what it means in your native language.


Simply write what you want to say with your preferred keyboard, then right before sending your message tap and hold the globe button and select Transkey. After you've chosen your target language, tap translate "textfield" and you'll see the translation almost immediately directly in the keyboard. From there you can easily replace the original text or copy the translation to your pasteboard.

If you'd like to translate a message you received, simply copy it and select translate "clipboard" in Transkey. The translation will appear in the same place.


Transkey makes communicating across languages incredibly easy by letting you translate directly from your messaging app, instead of interrupting the flow by forcing you to continuously switch between applications.

For accurate translations, Transkey relies on industry leading translation engines such as Google Translate and Yandex Translator. Easily upgrade inside the main application with only one tap of a button!

What's New

Version 1.3.2

!Transkey مرحبا بك في
Today we're welcoming our Arabic speaking neighbors with a complete Arabic localization!

Other than that I've:
• Been hard at work squashing a few bugs.
• Reenabled the keyboard switcher on iPhone X devices to avoid that sticky situation when you're using an non-optimized app and suddenly can't swap keyboards.

If you find Transkey useful, please consider sharing the app with your friends. You can simply tap "Share" straight from the keyboard. I'd greatly appreciate it!

And remember, if you ever run out of translations I recommend upgrading to Transkey Premium for unlimited higher quality translations! For a small monthly fee you can unlock all the features Transkey has to offer, and you'd help support the future development of this app.

If you find any bugs or have feature requests, please feel free to email me through the Transkey app or tweet me @alekplay!
