Type the desired language(s) and click on Save changes. From now on, Facebook won’t translate posts written in the selected language, but it will still offer you to translate the posts.

If you are learning a new language and don't want to be offered translations for it, add it to the section Languages for which you don't want to be offered translations for by selecting Edit.

Once you add the language(s), click on Save Changes. This way, Facebook won’t offer to translate posts written in the selected language.
