Reddit now allows you to translate posts into 8 languages

Published on


Reddit has announced that Reddit posts can now be translated into eight different languages. The languages ​​supported are mostly European and include English, Spanish, German, French, Portuguese, Italian, Dutch and Swedish.

To start translating posts, you’ll need to use Reddit on Android, iOS, or the web (as long as you’re offline). Although not available yet, the company said it has started experimenting with comment translations on iOS and Android – these will gradually roll out to users.

In its announcement, the company said that a translation option will now appear above posts on supported platforms. After clicking Translate, you can rate the translation and return the post to its original language by clicking See Source.

While the translation feature is useful, it’s a bit clunky without the ability to translate comments as well. Normally, the text posts you translate would be more interesting or make sense just with comments in the comments section, but right now these are stuck in their original language.

In her message, Reddit wrote:

You describe the advertisement in a different language! For non-Spanish speakers, this means you can now translate Reddit posts into other languages. Post details on iOS, Android, and offline can be translated into eight different languages ​​to start (English, Spanish, German, French, Portuguese, Italian, Dutch, and Swedish). By clicking the “Translate” button at the top of the post, the post will be translated into the language selected through your user settings.

We’ve also started experimenting with comment translations on iOS and Android, so some of you may notice this experiment. Soon, your entire conversation experience on Reddit can be multilingual!’

Besides adding the ability to translate posts, Reddit announced that coins will be discontinued on September 12th. The company recommends that you take the time to use your coins in the coming week if you have any.
