Instagram to allow users to translate posts with button

The Associated Press

MENLO PARK, Calif. (AP) Instagram is aiming to increase interaction with users across the globe through a new translation button it plans to roll out in the next month.

The photo sharing app says the button will appear on feed stories and profile bios written in languages different from the language a user's phone or tablet is set to. Instagram, which is owned by Facebook, says its community "has grown faster and become more global" than it ever imagined.

Instagram lists on its website 23 languages that will initially be supported by the new feature, including French, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese and Korean.
