Hello everyone

Does anyone know how to see a list of terms or phrases used in Facebook, along with their translations in another language?

Thanks
Samuel

Hi Samuel,

you could use the Facebook glossary: https://www.facebook.com/help/219443701509174/
Here you can switch between languages and so see the same term in different languages. However, there's not much in there.

Together with this one: http://www.facebook.com/business/help/447834205249495 but they're both extremely limited in scope and basically useless for FB-related localization.

So far, when I had to be absolutely certain about how a term/expression was localized in my target language, I've always had to search the term in a FB support page and then switch to the corresponding page in the target language, which is extremely time-consuming, so, like Samuel I would also be quite interested in a comprehensive "translator-friendly" resource.
