Instagram, which recently crossed 500 million users, plans to add a translation button on feed stories and profile bios, which are written in different languages.
Instagram wrote in a post, “In the coming month, you’ll see a translation button on feed stories and profile bios written in languages different from your own. 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.”

Instagram now boasts of more than 500 million users, with more than 80 percent being outside the United States. The photo-sharing social media app has seen its user base more than double over the past two years, and over 300 million people use the app every day, which makes it bigger than Twitter.
Facebook bought Instagram in 2012 for $1 billion, its first large acquisition.
Instagram has grown into one of the most popular social media apps worldwide and is expected to contribute significantly to Facebook’s revenue, with research firm eMarketer predicting the company will generate $1.5 billion in ad revenue this year.
Users shared on average more than 95 million photos and videos every day, with posts garnering 4.2 billion “likes” each day, revealed the company.
