Facebook is reportedly testing a new feature that could help Pages get messages read (and engaged with) by more people.

According to TheNextWeb, the feature lets Page managers write multiple versions of a post in different languages. Facebook will then display the most relevant version to users based on their own settings.

Page admins can even add a new language version of a post that has already been posted.

There's no word on if this might roll out to all pages, but it seems like the type of feature that would prove useful enough on a broad scale to warrant a full roll-out.

As TNW notes, there is already a feature that lets users have posts translated for them, but this gives the Page the ability to make sure the right language gets in front of the user in the first place, and that means these messages are more likely to be accurate (assuming the author understands the languages they're using).

This is just one of multiple new page features Facebook has been testing lately.
