We have other evidence anyway such as pictures together (for interview). And I have seen people posting that they didn’t translate their conversations, and in that conversation, I believe there are some english words that come up from time to time. You don’t limit yourself to those evidences and I think there’s nothing wrong showing your conversation in your language.

That’s why you include both the original and the translation. USCIS officers can’t read a language they do not speak. The conversation could be about anything

All documents submitted in support of an application or petition must include complete translation into English. In addition, there must be a certification from the translator indicating that the translation is complete and accurate and attesting to his or her competence as a translator. See 8 CFR 103.2(b)(3) .
 
According to USCIS site
always best to follow instructions USCIS gives

My spouse and I have about 3 years worth of WhatsApp chats which when I downloaded them from the app equated to over 2,000 pages in PDF form … 😨. Obviously not sending all that, much less translating all that lol. I am choosing excerpts from each year that document our ongoing relationship. When it is all said and done, we are talking 10 pages total to be submitted, including translated pages and the affidavit of translation (which happens to be a friend of mine I trust that speaks Spanish, and who I trust wont oogle at some of our lovey dovey conversations lol). I read somewhere that I as petitioner cannot sign such an affidavit which is why I am having a 3rd person do it. I am grateful for that, as I have enough on my plate with the rest of the petition (photos and other documents as evidence of bona fide marriage).
