Facebook prompts page name translation

Have an international market share? Facebook wants to make sure that users in different countries can find your page. Some page admins saw this week a prompt on the top of the page management dashboard to enter in translated titles for the page.

This way, a user in Japan will see the title of the page in Japanese, and so on.

Facebook doesn’t provide the translation, allowing the page manager to input the most precise and accurate title for that language. We’ve reached out to Facebook to elaborate, and we’ll update the story when we hear back.

Page admins can input translations for their page title by going to settings, then page info and down to translated names.

For Inside Facebook, Facebook only offered 4 language options: Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Arabic.
