Instagram is adding an automatic text translation feature

After announcing that it has over 500 million users, Instagram has shared that it is working on a text translation feature that will go live next month. Once enabled, you'll see a "See Translation" button that automatically translates text in posts, comments or bios to your preferred language. At launch, 24 languages will be supported, and while there isn't a clear-cut timeline, the feature will be rolling out to all users globally within a month.

The feature won't be available for older comments, as Instagram has started using machine learnings to translate text recently.
