The CEF Social Media Translator is a service that makes it easy to tweet in the EU languages you need to best connect with your audience. You can write a tweet in your preferred language and then have it translated. You can then tweet it directly from the interface using your own registered Twitter account. It uses the eTranslation “General Text” engines, which are better for short comments. The character limit in the original is slightly less than Twitter’s limit to allow for longer translations, along with a statement that the tweet has been machine translated.

The service all the languages supported by eTranslation.
