There have been a bunch of virtual keyboards launched for iOS 8 in the past couple of months, but a newly launched app called Slated can serve as both a keyboard and a translator for the iPhone and iPad.
Slated currently supports over 80 languages. You type, it offers a translation, and you choose whether or not that or your native language will be what you send. According to the app description:
Normally the app costs $4.99 but for a limited time it is available for just $2.99 in iTunes. It's worth noting that it does have some limitations, including a lack of autocomplete and error correct, as well as being a traditional hunt-and-peck keyboard. There are a lot of options there for iPhone and iPad keyboards and it's good to see something like Slated join the party.
