The Facebook Translations Team used International Translation Day Tuesday as the occasion to announce the launch of its Translate Facebook application on mobile.

Breton was also added as language No. 90 for Facebook, and the Translate Facebook app added a reference language feature.

Facebook appeared to be testing a translate posts tool in April, and in July, some users were given the option to rate how well the social network translated posts.

The Facebook Translations Team said in a post Tuesday:

Happy International Translation Day! We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your work to enable people connect in their native languages.

We are celebrating the day with some new releases:

We are also excited to announce the availability of the Translate Facebook app on mobile.

We are launching Facebook in our 90th language, Breton.

We are adding a new feature in the translation app, called reference language, which allows you to choose to display translations from another language. You can enable a reference language by clicking on edit settings in the translation app.
