Facebook tests automatic post translation function

Facebook is testing a new AI-powered tool, based on artificial intelligence that allows people to simultaneously post updates in multiple languages

Mashable reports about it

The tool, which is on desktop only for now, lets you select multiple languages when you compose a new update. Your words will be automatically translated to the languages you select and your followers will only see the update in their preferred language.

You can choose the language in languages section in Settings.

It should be recalled that automatic translation function became available at the beginning of the year for subscribers.

Half of Facebook subscribers don’t speak English: thus, translating the content is very important for the social networking website

Instagram is also expected to offer such function soon.
