Facebook to break language barrier with multilingual composer
With a motive to let users link with a wide group of people around the world, Facebook is taking a major step. Actually, it will now help people to connect and share their posts and comments in various languages, so that it can reach to a larger audience.

The largest social networking site in the world has announced that its own developers have improved upon a multilingual composer. A user test will be executed today on the same. The newly advanced tool will let users compose a post that will appear in various languages. The other users can read that post in their own preferred language.

"People use Facebook to share information and ideas in many different languages," the Facebook team wrote in a blog post. "In fact, 50 per cent of our community speaks a language other than English and most people don't speak each other's languages, so we're always thinking about ways we can help remove language as a barrier to connecting on Facebook."

Finally, Facebook has came up with a technology that will successfully remove language as a barrier. The users can enable the multilingual composer by altering their `Language' section in their `Account Settings'.

Facebook said that the composer is only accessible for desktops currently. However, others can read and see the multilingual posts across all platforms. As per Facebook, the site has begun testing the new service with individual users, and will begin testing it with pages earlier this year.
