Facebook Translator | How to translate different languages on Facebook
Wow, the Facebook translator enables users to translate and distribute posts in different languages. This will help Facebook users to reach a more global audience. This is a bid to help over 50% of Facebook users who don’t speak the English language and also don’t speak their native language. Hence, this tool is built for translating post text.
This tool is available for all pages and it’s for all users.
What does the Facebook translator do?
Well, in case you still doubt what this tool does, it simply reads your original post and then, translates it to another language that you choose.
Interestingly, it doesn’t show all text to users. For instance, if you write a post in English, and you want it to be translated to German, only users who have the default language in Facebook set to German will see it in that language.
However, you can edit the translated text if you want and add what you feel like adding. The Facebook notes pages use about 10,000 times of translation daily.
The Facebook translation is available on a post-by-post basis and you don’t need to install any type of apps or plug-ins to be able to use this feature. It’s supported by Bing.

Of course, you can use this took without having a Facebook account, so, if you know you want to make use of this tool, you must have created your Facebook account. Another place you can use it is if you have a Facebook business page. After, this, you can now follow the steps below:
