Built-in translations play an essential role in making users understand different languages. Twitter already has the feature of built-in translations, but it is now expanding it as “automatic translations” for tweets with a smaller group of users.
If you have set English as a primary language on Twitter, every tweet posted in a language other than English will show a translate button. Prior to the release of the new feature, you had to manually tap the translate button to get a translated version of a tweet; however, the new feature will automatically translate the post in the language that the user has set.
In a blog post, Twitter said that the new feature is currently being tested on the Brazilian users, where every tweet made in other languages is automatically translated into Brazilian Portuguese. But, this feature is disliked by many users as the automatic translation settings have been enabled by default.
Sometimes, highly famous Google Translate and Apple Translate fail to translate the content accurately, which can lead to misinterpretation. On the one hand, this feature can be handy for those who know only one language while on the other hand, many users can find this default feature irritating.
Twitter has not announced when the feature will release in other countries. Many people predict that Twitter might have to drop the idea of automatic translation before it is expanded worldwide.
