Instagram makes it easier to see Stories in foreign languages: All you need to know

Instagram has today rolled out a new feature for its users that will make it easier to view content in foreign languages.
The platform has added the functionality of automatic text translation in Stories — the ephemeral posts that last only 24 hours on a particular profile.
Do you need to enable automatic text translation in Instagram Stories?
No, the feature doesn’t require you to go through the app to enable some toggle or checkmark some box. The function will work and come into effect, as soon as it detects a foreign language in a post.
How to see translated text?
Once the Instagram app detects a foreign language on a Story post, it will show a “See Translation” option along with a white message icon on the top left of the screen. Tapping on this will open a section at the bottom of the screen with the original text as well as translated text.

How many languages does automatic text translation in Instagram Stories support?
As of now, the feature will offer support for over 90 languages including Hindi, Arabic, Japanese, Portuguese and more.
Automatic text translation in Instagram Stories availability
The feature has been made live globally for all the users.

Is there support for audio translation too?
No. According to a report by The Verge, Instagram says audio translation isn’t available “at this time.”

Instagram automatic text translation support
The app already supports text translation of comments, captions posted alongside its pictures, and user bios. They too get automatically translated based on the language they’re written in and the language settings of the person viewing it.
