It seems Hauwei is trying to replace every Google App in the HarmonyOS. The company is bringing the Huawei Petal Translator as a replacement Translation app to the Google Translator for its users in HarmonyOS.
After the U.S. ban on Huawei, the Chinese tech giant was forced to speed up the development of its own Ecosystem. It’s been about three years since Hauwei devices can’t make use of Google Mobile Services (GMS). This has stunted the growth and sales of Hauwei devices in many regions.

Without access to GMS, Huawei device can’t make use of Google services which includes: Google Play store, Gmail, Google Maps, YouTube, Google translator etc.
Good thing is, Huawei has decided to develop its own Ecosystem named Huawei Mobile Services (HMS). With the launch of the HarmonyOS 2, the company is increasing its pace to bring more apps for users.
