Twitter has now officially added Bing power translations for over 40 langues. Twitter has pushed to be a global network, with the company encouraging activist to take to Twitter to voice their problems and concerns. The translations work on web, iOS, Android, and Tweetdeck.
You can turn on the function in settings and choosing to activate “show Tweet translations.” The original tweet will show up, then the translation will be below.
The translation tool is far from perfect but Twitter acknowledges it.
“Although Bing Translator relies on advanced translation software to provide Tweet translations, the results still vary and often fall below the accuracy and fluency of translations provided by a professional translator,” according to Twitter’s blog post. “For this reason, the original text is always displayed above its translation.”
