The so-called "multilingual composer" is being tested only among a small group of users for now.

The social network said the feature is already being used by 5,000 Facebook Pages which are specifically for businesses and brands, but it will soon open for testing to the broader social network.

The software uses artificial intelligence (AI) to prefill the translation field when you add different languages to a post.

It utilises information like a user's location, language preferences and what language a person most commonly uses to post on Facebook to decide which version of the message to show.
