Instagram rolls out text translations in Stories
Instagram has announced a new option that automatically translates the texts found in Stories.
The new service detects a foreign language in a Story and displays a “See Translation” option. Users just need to tap it (below the user’s name), and a translation will pop up (at the bottom).
When you’re watching a story with text, you’ll get a ‘See Translation’ notice if your set language is different than the one in the story.
Just tap it and a translation will pop up ?

According to Instagram, the new translation feature will be available globally, and it currently supports over 90 languages to make sharing content with an international audience easier.
To recall, Instagram has added automatic translations to comments, captions, and user bios in 2016.
