Google has announced a built-in translation tool for Google+ that allows users to translate from another language to your preferred language “with a single click”. Just like Facebook, any post or comment that isn’t in your default language will have a ‘translate’ button.

Ed Chi, Staff Research Scientist at Google, wrote on his Google +:

“The Google Translate team is always working to make information more accessible to individuals around the world. In Google+ this means bringing people together regardless of their written language, and breaking down language barriers that can limit the exchange of ideas.”

The translation feature isn’t something new to Google +. Two years ago, Google introduced a Chrome extension for Google + which offered similar functions. Of course, the difference is that the new tool will work on all browsers.

For now, the feature is limited to desktop browsers and is “gradually” rolling out to users. As for mobile, there is no official words on when it will be available.
