I cannot make sense of the how the BBC report (Technology) News anymore - is this the most blatant article ignoring anything Google? And what's worse, comments are closed..
I have two quotes from the post..

Twitter is using Microsoft Bing translator as an "experiment".

Social media site Facebook also offers a translate feature for its foreign-language posts.

Edit addition: Google Translate offers a host of translation across all services in gmail, chrome, websites, apps - virtually anyone.
