The relationship between Bing and Facebook just got deeper. Facebook and Bing are already collaborating on Bing Social search results, Bing maps powering Facebook’s location services and now on Bing Translator for Facebook pages. By this new feature on Facebook, people can enjoy Facebook Page content regardless of the languages that they know, they can click translate button next to like button to do the translation in their language. The service is powered by Bing Translator/Microsoft Translator.

From Facebook’s announcement,

Today we launched a new translation tool that enables people to translate posts directly inline on Facebook Pages through Bing Translate. With this service, we are making it even easier for people to enjoy Page content on Facebook regardless of the languages that they know.
When someone clicks on the translate button on a public Page post, a Bing translation will appear in a popout window. People then have the opportunity to submit their own translation by opting-in to using inline translations. After their generated translation has received enough positive votes, it will replace the Bing translation and will appear each time someone clicks on the translate button associated with the post.
Page admins can always control how their content is translated within the "Your Settings" tab in the Edit Page view.

    Google Translate has been more accurate than Bing Translate, but hopefully steps like this will cause it to catch up faster.
