Something keeps translating my FB pages into English. The original is Thai and you can not understand translated thai even if you are thai. Its a figurative language and can only be understood in Thai by a Thai. Sometimes the translation ends with "translated by Bing" and sometimes not. I don't know if it is Bing, Google or done  by aliens and i don't really care. I just want to control what is translated and what is not. Any ideas?

It could either be your browser or facebook. When you see translated by bing, that is facebook.  You can remove the app.

From facebook help:
To remove the Translations app, click the Globe in the bottom right corner of any Facebook page to open a menu. Then click the ‘x’ next to the Translations App link.
