Instagram has allowed translation in 60 languages on posts and captions since 2016. Now it is translating text in Stories as well.
Instagram is now letting users automatically translate text in Stories that they see on its platform. When a foreign language is detected in a Story, users are offered the ability to have that text automatically translated by clicking on the “See Translation” option that appears on the top left of their screen.
Instagram has already allowed users to have text in posts and captions translated into 60 languages since 2016, but the number of languages for the automatic translation tool has now been brought to 90 for Stories.
Users around the world will be able to translate text into languages like Arabic, Hindi, Japanese and Portuguese. The adaptation of the tool to the Story format as well as the expansion of the total number of languages the text can be translated to shows that Instagram is big on further developing its already-popular Stories feature.
Translations will only be available for text written in Stories, but will not translate from audio. In addition, support for certain languages will depend on the operating system used.
