Worlds Largest Social Networking site has rolled out a new translation feature, which relies on Microsoft’s BING Translate. Nows Facebook users are able to translate public Facebook Page content, including comments, into a language that they are able to understand. ‘Translate’ link now appears under a public page’s post. When clicked, the post’s content is translated inline to a language that the user has specified as their own in their personal profile settings. The translate link only appears when the post is written in a language other that the user’s specified one. Facebook users in Korean, Russia, Taiwan and Hong Kong are given an option to suggest their own translation post. If their suggested translations receive enough positive votes from other Facebook users, this human translation replaces Bing’s machine transcription.
Facebook Revealed on a Post:
“Last night we launched a new translation tool that enables people to translate posts directly inline on Facebook Pages through Bing Translate. With this service, it will be even easier for people to enjoy public Page content on Facebook regardless of the languages that they know. If a comment is posted in another language, you’ll see a “translate” button.
When a user clicks on the translate button on a public Page post, a Bing translation will appear in a popout window. Users then have the opportunity to submit their own translation by opting-in to using inline translations. After the user generated translation has received enough positive votes, it will replace the Bing translation and will appear each time someone clicks on the translate button associated with the post.”
