Facebook Translations

Facebook has come up with another brave idea of translating the whole Facebook into local languages of the users. The list contains more than 60 languages from the world. The idea is to let the people translate the site themselves in their native languages.

The process is to add the “Translations” application. An invitation to this application popped up onto my home page when I logged in Facebook this morning.

Once you have added the application, you select your language and you are all set to start translation. You simply click “Go translate” and you can see phrases coming up on English. You click translate and type the appropriate translated phrases.

As Facebook is all about social interaction and community effort, all these translations will be verified and voted by the other users and eventually your Facebook localized version will be ready to be used.
