Need an audio language translator app (zoom, phone, etc), particularly for Chinese Mandarin. Any suggestions?

I'm looking for both an iPhone and Mac app solution for this:

I'm starting to work with a Shanghai-based team, and we're doing zoom, WeChat calls, and lots of WeChat texts. Currently, I can only copy text into a separate Google Translate app, and then type out my response and paste it back into the text field. I text 99% of the time through my Mac (not iPhone) with all text apps, but I'd like to get an app for both the Mac and iOS.

I definitely don't want the solutions that require a live translator, only looking for software accuracy, which will be enough.

Thanks for any ideas and experiences.

iPhones come with a Translate app. This will at least cover spoken-word.

If you have the shared clipboard going between devices, bob’s yer uncle.

All these years, and I never had seen/opened up that app. I think that will work perfectly for the needs. Not sure how to share a clipboard between iPhone and Mac, but I'll check it out.

Also just discovered that both the iPhone and Mac version of WhatsApp has a right-click text translator built into it. Never saw that feature until a few minutes ago.
