Facebook Translate: Facebook has a "Translate" Feature for Pages

I wonder whether I'm the slow one but I just started noticing today that Facebook has a translate feature-probably because am not an avid Facebook user. When you land on a Facebook page in a language other than English, the translate feature appears by default allowing you to connect across language barriers. The translation features allows you to translate up to 70 languages! Apart from making our life easier, it's important that Facebook has realized that people connect on an international level.

 I for example would love the freedom to read and contribute to posts and discussions of Chinese users, Arabic users, French users, German users without having to resort to Google translate every time which is really rather hectic. It's a small feature but with significant global implications for Facebook users, allowing them to cross borders and connect to new cultures!
