Translation On Facebook

2 years ago I predicted that Facebook would have a translation button on the walls of people who wrote in other languages. Now that it’s happened, we have to ask whether it is accurate, whether Bing automates these translations, and if so whether Bing misses the inside-jokes wordplay of specific languages. In other words is something lost in translation? OR are there people actually translating these sentences, like with CardMunch?

Ending compartmentalized interaction will be a multi-billion dollar industry.
