Fetching node translation

$node = Node::load($nid);
$node->getTitle(); // returns title in en(default language).
$translated_node = \Drupal::service('entity.repository')->getTranslationFromContext($node, 'es');
$translated_node->getTitle(); // Returns translated title in es (spanish).

If we want to fetch the bundle's translation. The above approach doesn't work.

Kindly advise?

$article = $node->bundle();
$article->label(); // returns "Article".
$translated = \Drupal::service('entity.repository')->getTranslationFromContext($article, 'es');
$translated->label(); // Also returns "Article". 

Translation for bundles provided from /admin/structure/types/manage/article/translate/es/edit

You need to set the config override language to the desired language:

  $language = $language_manager->getLanguage('es');
  $original_language = $language_manager->getConfigOverrideLanguage();

  // Load the node type here.
