Inline Translation for Facebook Pages Introduced

Facebook and Bing are getting into a deeper relationship as Facebook announced the incorporation of Bing Translate into the service.

Any public page that is not in your native language can be translated inline by hitting the “Translate” button on the post. You will also have the option to improve the translation as well.

This comes from Facebook Page’s post

Today we launched a new translation tool that enables people to translate posts directly inline on Facebook Pages through Bing Translate. With this service, we are making it even easier for people to enjoy Page content on Facebook regardless of the languages that they know.

When someone clicks on the translate button on a public Page post, a Bing translation will appear in a popout window. People then have the opportunity to submit their own translation by opting-in to using inline translations. After their 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.

As with most Facebook improvements the comments were filled with calls to go back to the old Facebook and to fix the things that don’t work before adding new features. It’s a regular event on Facebook updates which can be entertaining but is getting pretty old pretty fast.
