If you belong English speaking community and you aren’t familiar with other languages, you’d probably post your tweets in English . But if you want to post them in other languages that you don’t understand, use Twitrans for translating your tweets.
Twitrans, a recently launched service lets users to quickly translate their Tweets in a variety of languages. The translation is done by humans using the one-hour translation platform so the translation results are better than the one you’d get from automated translation services like BabelFish or Google Translator.
This service is available for many of the languages widely spoken all over the world. The languages are: Arabic, Chinese, Dutch, English, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish.
You don’t need to sign up for using the service. All you need to do is send the tweet to twitrans starting your message with @twitrans. Suppose you want to translate the message “My projects are finally over.” from English to French, you should post a tweet like this.
@twitrans en2fr My projects are finally over.
Here en2fr prompts the translators to translate the message from English to French. The language shortcuts for supporting languages are as follows:
Once you send the tweets as above, they will send you a message saying that the human translation has started and you’ll receive the translation shortly. Then after sometime, within an hour you’ll receive the translated tweet. But the message is not directly sent to us but is posted as updates in their Twitter profile i.e. twitter.com/twitrans. This is a bit of a glitch.
So, if you want to get your tweets translated by humans in other languages, Twitrans will be a nice option.
