Instagram Debuts Translation Tool

Screen Shot 2016-06-23 at 7.39.58 AMInstagram is about to get a little more multi-cultural.

The image-sharing app will soon automatically translate the comments, captions and user bios on its network.

“In the coming month, you’ll see a translation button on feed stories and profile bios written in languages different from your own,” the company said in a blog post. “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.”

To discover if your language is available as a translation, simply tap See Translation below the text to view it. You can also learn more about translation on Instagram at help.instagram.com.

News of the update comes the same week the Facebook-owned company announced it has reached the 500-million user mark.

The firm has seen a lot of change this year with a major makeover of its app and a new logo to boot.
