yikyak-translate-ios – iOS Take Home Project

Before you start

  • Make sure you have the latest stable version of Xcode and have a way to connect to a GitHub repository. You should be ready to run code from a repo on a physical device or simulator.


You have been asked to create a translation app! You’ve been given a version that is already partially implemented, but you must finish it off. Currently, the app loads a list of possible translation languages from an API, allows the user to select one, and takes in user text input. There is also a button that says “Translate” and a text view that should display the translated result, but both currently do nothing. The app uses the LibreTranslate API. The documentation for the API is here: https://libretranslate.com/docs/

Your tasks are as follows:

  • Implement the translation functionality. The app currently uses TranslationService to make API calls, and the UI components are already in place in TranslationView. This should involve:
  • Leave the code better than you found it – if there are places within the code that you feel could be improved, whether it’s a performance issue, architecture issue, or something else entirely, feel free to change it.
