New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on Feb. 19, 2022) follows:

Twitter is one of the most popular social networks available. The concept of Twitter is a microblogging platform for short and concise posts with limited characters.

Like other social networks, Twitter allows you to add images or videos to your posts. However, the distinguishing feature of Twitter is the length of the posts (also called ‘tweets’).

Twitter also offers some useful tools to enhance the accessibility of the service. One of these tools is the translation of tweets, but the feature is not working properly for some users according to reports.

Twitter translate function not working issue

Normally, to translate a tweet, users only have to select the translation option that is included in each post written in a language other than the default selection.

However, some users are facing issues where the Twitter translate button is not working or does not appear on tweets (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14).

@TwitterSupport Hey, today out of nowhere my account can no longer translate tweets, while my other account still can, I have tried uninstalling and re-installing and even checked to see if an option had been changed, but I haven’t been able to fix it, please help.

@TwitterSupport what has happened to the TRANSLATE TWEET option?!….NOT HAPPY!!!! 98% OF THE PEOPLE I FOLLOW REQUIRE A TRANSLATION OF TWEETS.

The multiple reports on the matter also suggest that this is not an issue that happens to everyone. It seems that it appears randomly in some Twitter accounts without apparent explanation.

Um @TwitterSupport where is the translate tweet button? I use it approximately 57898643 times a day and I need it back please.

@Twitter @TwitterSupport why can’t I translate a tweet? The button to translate a tweet is not available for me. Thank you.

Some users suggest that the Twitter translate issue started from the most recent update of the app. However, this is yet to be confirmed.


The Twitter team is investigating the issue

The Twitter support team is already aware of the issue. The company is currently investigating, but they did not offer information on a possible arrival date for a fix.

Sorry about that. Our team is aware of this, and they’re currently looking into it. We’ll reach out if we have any questions.

At the moment, affected users can only wait for new updates to emerge on the matter. We will add to this story the new relevant information that arises.

Update 1 (February 9, 2023)

10:41 am (IST): Multiple reports (1, 2, 3, 4) suggest that the translate function is again broken or not working for some users.

This problem might have something to do with the recent Twitter outage due to which users were getting ‘tweet not sent’ error.

Update 2 (February 24, 2023)

05:37 pm (IST): The recent issue with translate function appears to have been resolved as we haven’t come across any fresh report concerning the same.

Update 3 (June 1, 2023)

08:18 am (IST): Multiple reports indicate that the ‘Twitter translate tweet’ feature is currently not working (1, 2).

Update 4 (June 2, 2023)

09:18 am (IST): Things seems to have gone from bad to worse as it looks like Twitter has removed the ‘Translate’ button altogether (1,2,3,4).

Update 5 (June 5, 2023)

05:24 pm (IST): The Twitter Translate feature is now working correctly again.

This means users have to manually copy the text of the tweet and translate it somewhere else.
