Twitter now offers automatic language translation for tweets viewed at Twitter.com. There's been no official announcement of the new feature yet, but the Bing-powered translations have begun popping up for some users. The Verge has confirmed that translations are currently enabled (we've embedded a sample below) and support a number of languages at launch, though not all Twitter.com vistors are seeing them just yet. Twitter has been testing Bing translate with a small subset of users to this point.

The move follows a similar implementation of translations — again powered by Bing — seen in Twitter's Windows Phone app earlier this week. As you'd expect, the translations are by no means flawless but at least provide you with the gist of a tweet's content. We've reached out to Twitter for more details as to when all users will begin seeing translations.
