Facebook Testing Automatic Translation?

By David Cohen Comment


Facebook appears to be experimenting with automatic translation, including the extension of that functionality to calls to action.

Reader Matteo Gamba shared these screenshots with SocialTimes, showing that the text in the Facebook post was automatically translated, and offering users the opportunity to rate the translation, as well as to opt out of automatic translation.


Gamba also discovered the extension of Facebook’s translation to a “book an appointment” call to action, likely aimed at local businesses.
