Facebook Testing Translate Feature For Comments? 91

An anonymous reader writes "Facebook may be testing a translation feature that could overcome the language barrier many users experience on the social network. If a comment posted on a Page is in a language that is different than the one your Facebook account is set to, a Translate button may show up just below it beside the existing Like button. Clicking on the button will translate the comment to your account language. After translation, an Original button appears instead, and if you click that it will revert the comment to the original version (and presumably offer the Translation button again)."

    r u - would you be so kind to let me know if you are
    brb - I am terribly sorry for the interruption, but I must leave you for a moment to attend to the important business of flossing my cat
    bf - gentleman caller
    gf - imaginary friend
    thx - thank you so much! I would be forever in your debt, but that would not be politically correct
    rofl - your anachronistic babbling amuses me
    rl - that rustic, charming place where you live
    rtfm - I suggest you improve your intelligence before continuing this conversation
    fyi - but I am sure you do not care for it
    ftw - is a much better alternative that you would have thought of if you were younger
    afaik - by saying this I do not wish to appear to actually know anything, as that would result in ostracism by my peers
