Twitter Examining Auto-Translate Feature

The number of Twitter users increasing day in and day out. With such a massive growth, it is natural for a social network to roll out an option that enables users to read tweets beyond their native language. Yes, Twitter is bringing something special for its users all over the world.

According to reports, Twitter is testing a new feature, which will automatically translate tweets into various languages with the aid of Bing Translator.

While talking to media, Twitter’s representative told that the company has begun rolling out the feature to a handful of users last week to test the workability of its new feature that will offer users better and smooth experience of communication with others, without thinking much about the language.

The spokesperson further said, “A small percentage of users can see the option to translate the text of a tweet with Bing Translator as part of an experiment.” He added, “We want to help people connect and discover what’s new – no matter where they are in the world or what languages they speak.”

Although, the roll out is limited to only a handful of users, so those lucky to get one are now able to click on a non-English tweet and view a translated version of the tweet in English. A Thai website Faceblog.in.th has released images of tweets written in Thai, Korean and Japanese, with an English translation written underneath. In order to make this service functional, Twitter has partnered with Bing Translator – a free translation service that changes text and webpages into various languages.

However, it is still not clear when Twitter will roll out this new feature to all members across the world. We hope that the new feature will soon be rolled out to the world for Twitter’s members.
