Google+ adds language translation service for posts and comments.

As part of Google's efforts to bulk out its social networks' features and tie more of its services together, its language translation offering Google Translate is now available on the fly in Google+ posts and comments.

Similar to Facebook's translation feature, Google+ will show a "Translate" link below a post or comment that's not written in what you have set as your default language. Click once to translate it, and click again to show the original post.

For now, the feature is limited to Google+ on desktop browsers and will be rolling out "gradually" to Google+ users.
