YouTube has deployed a translation feature on its mobile and web apps that will translate a comment into the language of your choice.
Now you will be able to understand what someone is saying on YouTube in a language you don't know by pressing a delegated button.
The feature has been moved out with support for over 100 languages including Spanish, Portuguese, French, Bahasa, and others.
The feature will be available to YouTube web and mobile app users and has begun to roll out. The Translate button is present just below the Comment but above the Like, Dislike and Reply buttons.
Pressing it will translate the comment into the native language defined by the user. For example, if you have set the native language to English, the feature will display the option "Translate to English between the comment and the line of options- like, dislike and reply".
Translated comments are returned in the language which is automatically detected based on various factors such as your language, location, and recently watched videos. These signals display comments in the language that works best for you. This language may differ from your primary language setting.
The translate button won't automatically convert the language from one comment to another. It requires you to tap it whenever you want to translate a comment.
The feature has arrived in India and you can check it out right away. Remember to update the YouTube mobile app on Android and iOS if you haven't already.
