Facebook automatic translation how to disable it. Facebook is an international social network. There are hundreds of millions of users who do not speak Spanish.

You might have a friendship with some of them.

To help make life easier for you, Facebook, by default, translates their messages for you.

This function is fine if we do not speak and understand any language such as English, French etc .. because often the Facebook machine translation can translate the real sentence a little weird.

So if you are familiar with foreign languages ​​perhaps it is better to turn it off to better understand what people are saying. Let's take a look at how to turn it off.

Disable Facebook automatic translation

When you see a post that has been automatically translated in the new feed, you can click the Settings icon (gear below the post) and select “Disable Automatic Translation for”.

This will still leave an option to translate the post again. If we set to never translate this option will be deleted.

Alternatively, you can go to Settings> Language by clicking the down arrow at the top right of the menu bar and selecting Settings.

Click on "Which languages ​​do you not want automatic translation for?”And enter the desired language.

Click Save Changes, and messages in that language will no longer be translated automatically, but you will have the option to manually translate them by clicking on the link below the post.

If you no longer want to have the translation option on a particular language, click on "Which languages ​​do you know?”, Add the language, and then click Save Changes.
