[Updated] Twitter translate tweet function not working issue being looked into, confirms support
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.
@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.
