The Facebook Translation Feature For Business Purposes
The new Facebook translation tool was released in October, opening up a whole new range of possibilities foryour business. Imagine reaching clients in different languages across the globe! Suddenly, your sales potentialhas increased. So, how do you use thenew translation tool for your business?
Facebook has had the crowdsourced translation functionality for quite a few years now. If you’ve never usedthem, now you can. This is especially useful for your Facebook apps and general page info.
Fans from other countries are morelikely to play, use your app or like your page, if it’s in their own language. Simple enough – just ask your developer to activate the translation tool.
Once the translation app is activated, static text and app text will appeartranslated on your page for users thatprefer an alternative language. While app translation takes a bit more time for the developer – it’s worth the trouble.
This is even more important if you have a social game app. Everyone loves to game, but one-languagerestrictions ruins the experience for non-English speakers.
Soon, you’ll be able to translate any comment that appears on your Facebook page. That means as non- English people read your translatedposts and reply – you can do the same. This basically removes that pesky language barrier that has prevented people from all over the world communicating effectively on Facebook.
The translate button will appear belowcomments, next to the like option. Thistranslation will still harness the power of crowdsourcing, and fans can enter in more accurate versions as they browse your page. If it’s voted up enough times, that translation will replace the original. This way, yourpage content will be so precise – it will be like reading English.
Now that fans will be able to comment on your page in any language, you canbegin to target new markets. If you see your foreign speaking demographic rising, you can invest in an ad campaign in that language to attract even more fans!
