|Text translated from Spanish to English.|
Once available, a small “Translate” button will appear underneath text in foreign languages. The languages that will be marked as needing to be translated and the language it translates to is based on your Google account settings. If you need to, you can view or adjust your language preferences in your Google account settings.
This feature will surely come in handy to many users due to Google+’s diversity. According to data collected by +GPlusData, a good 68.5 percent of its almost 18 million tracked users live outside of the U.S.; of a smaller 228,000 sample size, 46 percent use a language other than English. This feature should bridge the language barrier which divides the social network’s community roughly in half. It should increase engagement across Google+ for all users, including speaking all languages.
