FAQs about Tweet translation
Who is translating the Tweets?
We’ve partnered with Bing Translator to provide machine translations of Tweets between more than 40 language pairs.
Some of the translations seem to be of low quality. Why?
Although Bing Translator relies on advanced translation software to provide Tweet translations, the results still vary and often fall below the accuracy and fluency of translations provided by a professional translator. For this reason, the original text is always displayed above its translation. For more information on translation quality, see this Bing Translator FAQ.
