Twitter is currently testing automatic translations for tweets to be sent in different languages.

The app already provides an in-built translation feature that lets users translate their tweets.

But the latest addition means that if your default language to tweet is, for example, English then all tweets can be viewed in English now without pressing a button.

The function is being trialled with users in Brazil right now whereby some users will be able to view translations and revert back by pressing a button, while others will be shown the original and translations simultaneously.

The translations are coming from Google and Microsoft and will be labelled accordingly.

Twitter plans to review performance of the different translation integrations in time and expand the function to more users in time.
