I noticed during the last days that Twitter adds a “translation” from Bing Translate to tweets when I expand a tweet in the web interface. This happens even on my own tweets.
Is there a way to turn the automatic translations off?
The translations are so bad, they aren’t even funny anymore.
What I have tried already
- I searched in
twitter.com/settings/accountfor a translation checkbox.
- Switched the interface language from German to English (I post in both languages). This switches just the languages that get translated; it doesn’t stop the translations.
- I checked
twitter.com/settings/applicationsfor a Bing app or something similar.
- Searched the Twitter support pages for “Bing”. No useful result.
- Asked the German and the English Twitter accounts.
- Sent a message to Twitter via the feedback form.
I might get a feedback from Twitter later. I will update this question then. But for now, I don’t see how to turn it off.
