If you've been following the events surrounding the election in Iran, you know that sites such as Twitter and Facebook have been crucial in demonstrating what is going on in the country. The government has been trying to stifle protests, but the citizens - and media - are determined to tell the story.
But, if you're not fluent in Persian, also known as Farsi, you might have problems reading those Tweets or Facebook updates. Now, you'll have a little help.
In reponse to the current election crisis in Iran, Google and Facebook have (separately) released Persian (also known as Farsi) translation features.
Facebook has launched a version of their social network in Persian. If you're using a Persian browser (you're probably not reading this post), it should launch automatically. Otherwise, go to your settings and select Persian from the Language tab.
Google has added Persian to Google Translate. They're pushing it out early due to the events in Iran. It's optimized for translation with English, and even then it may have a few glitches.
