28-7-2019: Due to the changes made by Apple in the latest version of their operating system, any Shortcut created using iOS 13 (and iPadOS) will no longer be compatible with earlier versions such as iOS 12.



TranslateHub is currently the fastest translator available for your Shortcuts. Taking less than 2 seconds to fetch your preferred language file, TranslateHub removes any doubt towards performance by over performing.

Then you can move on to the next step, which is where you add the Run Shortcut Action linking to TranslateHub.
