Disadvantage of Facebook Automatic Translation For You

Your main focus was to get more attention from the audiences in their native language. Your target audience will see your ads and react to it through comments.

Facebook Provide Translation what audience has written, and you can easily understand their query and you can reply back to their Native Language.


That can be a challenging task as you are not that much comfortable in that language. So, there are a lot of tools that you can use like Google Translate.

I will recommend after doing automatic translation review all translated text once. This feature is Worth Trying.
