With now over 500 million users worldwide, from all walks of life and background, Instagram has announced that it is gearing up for the launch of in-app automatic language translation.
That means you will be able to view translated version of your Instagram connections’ posts, bios, comments, and captions written in foreign languages. The social network wrote:
“In the coming month, you’ll see a translation button of feed stories and profile bios written in languages different from your own. The Instagram community has grown faster and become more global than we ever imagined. And we’re excited that you’ll soon be able to understand the full story of a moment, no matter what language you speak.”However, there is one caveat. Not all languages will be supported from day one, (but can they really support all languages in the world?). Instagram explains, “If translations aren’t showing up, it could be because we couldn’t detect or don’t currently support the language.”
