The Translate button is present just below the comment but above the Like, Dislike and Reply buttons. Tapping will translate the comment to the native language set by the user. For example, if you have set the native language to English (UK), the function will display the option of ‘Translate to Spanish (UK) between the comment and the row for the Like, Dislike, and Reply options.
“Translated comments are returned in the language that is automatically detected based on various signals, such as your language, location, and recently viewed videos. These signs display comments in the language that best suits your needs. This language may be different from the primary language setting, ”YouTube says in a post.

The translation button will not automatically convert the language from one comment to another, but it does require you to tap it each time you want to translate a comment.
