No Cebuano Translation in Facebook Pages


In Facebook Pages, posts like Status Messages in languages other than English can be translated using an inline translation powered by Bing. Click the translate link under the post, as shown in the image below, and a Bing translation will appear in a pop out window.

However, there is no translation yet for Cebuano and other languages in the Philippines. The service is currently available in five countries: Korea, Japan, Russia, Taiwan, and Hongkong.

The feature is collaborative in nature since everyone in your contacts can offer their own translation. Your contact’s translation shall be voted upon by others and once the translation got enough positive votes, it will replace the Bing translation. You can manage the translation by approving it or offer your own translation.
