A number of social media services have been rolling out real-time translations for messages that just so happen to not be in your own native tongue as we’ve seen Twitter roll out this feature just a few months ago. Today, it looks like it’s Google+’s turn as the service is now making it easier for everyone to communicate by offering real-time translations.
If you’re interested in knowing what exactly people are saying, but don’t want to spend thousands of dollars on either Rosetta Stone or taking classes to learn a new language, then Google+ will make it easy for you to understand what’s going on by including a “Translate” link below a post or comment. The translate link will only be available for languages Google+ detects that isn’t your default language. Clicking on the translate link will, of course, translate the text, while an additional link will bring the text back to its original state.
The new translate feature in Google+ will only be made available on the desktop version of the social network and will gradually make its way across all Google+ users. So if you have something that needs to be translated right this second, then you should get your translation elsewhere if you haven’t received the service yet.
