If you’re a Twitter user whose native tongue is not English, Twitter has some great news for you! Twitter Translate is Twitter’s initiative to translate Twitter into other languages. Under the Twitter Translator program, Twitter is “calling on the help of real Twitterers to translate our site into their own language.”

Twitter is already working on translations for Twitter into Spanish, French, Italian and German, and, they say, a translation into Japanese is already done.


Currently the opportunity to become a Twitter Translator is by invite-only but, says Twitter, they “may allow any Twitterer to help translate at some time in the future.”

Twitter Translators can be identified by this special logo above their profile on their Twitter page:

Twitter Translators have access to special Twitter translation tools, which display a special set of options on the translator’s screen, including a “Translate this page” option. Upon clicking the “Translate this page” option, explains Twitter, “the Translate Box will appear on the screen, pointing to a certain word or phrase. You can type in your own translation or vote on another translation from within the box. The box then jumps to the next phrase until you’ve translated everything on the page. After that, you move to another page.”

Twitter says that there is also another translate mode, which “allows you to translate everything on the site in a single list. In either mode, you can translate as much or as little as you’d like, and can stop when you’d like without losing your translations. Once we’ve collected a good number of translations for every phrase across the site, we will review them and pick the most accurate one.”
