Android :: Android Phone With Korean Language Support
I've searched but I haven't found any conclusive answers. If I buy an android phone on AT&T, could I text in Korean to both other android phones and iphones?

Android :: Runtime Language Change Support
I am developing an Android App which communicated with a server. User can select a language of his choice at startup or during the App execution lifetime. After selecting the language, the corresponding XML file is downloaded from server according to language which will map the "Values" of Application strings according to that language. Can I do something like replacing the default Strings.xml which contains English names(Say by default) to the language selected by user. Better will be adding an XML file per language and referring it runtime directly.
Android :: Multi Language Support - Installing APK
If I run my android application with a HTC magic with locale English, I find my application running properly and if I try to run it on Motorola droid with locale Korean, My application(apk) is not even installing on the device. Does android support different language? Is it is because of different language OS versions?
Android :: SQL Query Support Based On Language Settings
Can someone tell me if there is way to write an SQL query to get list of contact names from phonebook which matches its english name given that the phone language is set to Spanish.If I write a query to get a contacts whose last name ends with "Dad", but for some contacts the last name "Dad" will be stored as "pap√°" in Spanish.So the query where I write to match for lastname="dad" will not work as they are different characters. Is there a way in SQL which takes care of language translation as well while quering?
Android :: Does TTS Support Speech Synthesis Markup Language?
Passing the following SSML (Speech Synthesis Markup Language) document to the com.svox.pico TextToSpeech engine resulted in a reading of the XML body but no control from the phoneme element or the emphasis element. This result (no apparent SSML control) is the same on a Nexus One running Android 2.2 as well as on the emulator running an AVD with SDK level 8.
String text = "<?xml version="1.0"?>" +
"<speak version="1.0" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2001/10/synthesis" " +
"xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" " +
"xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.w3.org/2001/10/synthesis " +
"http://www.w3.org/TR/speech-synthesis/synthesis.xsd" " +
"tomato " +
"<phoneme alphabet="ipa" ph="təmei̥ɾou̥"> tomato </phoneme> " +
"That is a big car! " +
"That <emphasis> is </emphasis> a big car! " +
"That is a <emphasis> big </emphasis> car! " +
"That is a huge bank account! " +
"That <emphasis level="strong"> is </emphasis> a huge bank account! " +
"That is a <emphasis level="strong"> huge </emphasis> bank account!" +
"</speak>"; mTts.speak(text, TextToSpeech.QUEUE_ADD, null);
Does any Android TTS engine support any of the SSML elements?
Android :: Extending Soft Keyboard With Language Switching Support?
I just got my HTC Desire with Android 2.1, and the first problem I'm running into a lot is when using the visual keyboard. Being multilingual and having friends who only speak one particular language, there's no single 'correct' input language setting for the word prediction feature, so I started looking into how much work it might be to extend the keyboard with two rather basic, though essential, features:
1) Showing the current language selection, so that I don't have to type stuff, getting it mis-corrected, then discover the language setting must be wrong, go into the settings, select to change language, select language, etc. until I get back, erase the old text and start over. That gets old real quick.
2) Being able to simple change whatever language is used for the word prediction by just having a button on the keyboard doing that directly, i.e. a button that just cycles through the 'relevant' languages with the key label showing which is currently active. Improving it even further, one might imagine:
3) Having a per contact setting, noting the word-prediction language that should be used when communicating with that user. But searching through the docs, I'm slowly coming to the realization that the input text language setting may not even be available to be changed outside the system settings dialog, making this impossible to implement - is that correct?
Android :: Localization Support Without Changing Locale / Language Of Device?
I created a set of text resources in different languages:
when a user runs our application, the Android system selects which resources to load, based on the device's locale.
So basically I want to add language option in my application and save user language preference, then load text resources based on user preference.
Is there any way to do this?
Sprint HTC Hero :: Arabic Language Support Possible
I'm new here and I know you probably don't know anything about the Arabic Language Support, but I thought I might ask the experts. I downloaded something called "Arabic Android" and after flashing it, the Hero hanged in the boot screen and I had to spend over 3 hours to get back as no re-flashing or Nandroid restoring worked. Anyway, if there is a trusted way to add the Ararbic support, I would be more than grateful to have it as many of my friends send me Arabic SMS, emails, tweets and Facebook messages.
Android :: Android Language Support / How To Get Unicode Characters To Work?
Does anyone know how to get Unicode characters to work in an android app.
e.g Unicode U+00C1 HTML
I currently get these characters by holding down AltGr key on my PC keyboard and hitting the appropriate letter. (my Language is set to UK). I have used these characters in a custom Android App but when I call the application the characters appear as a Square with question mark in the middle?
I can add words to my dictionary in Android by holding down the letters required and adding them to my Android Dictionary. but when the same words are called from my custom App they appear as a Square with question mark in the middle?
Android :: How To Add Language Support To Android?
I want to work on supporting my language, specially the writing on android. We use Arabic characters with little modification ( like parsi, urdu etc). I was hoping android has fully supported Arabic, then I would make changes to work with my language. but even 2.2 doesn't support Arabic. It just show Arabic characters and it is not connected.
Some individuals have made Arabic support on CyanogenMod ROM's for some HTC phones, but they would not tell how they made it. I've got the android source code, I want to know where to start, where to make changes , what is the library that handle fonts, shaping engine etc.
Ps: Android.com and other android related google groups are blocked in my country.
Android :: JVM Based Language Without Language Runtime
Does anyone know of some alternative JVM language, however obscure it might be, which can compile to plain old java bytecode, without the need of a language runtime.I need this in order to try to develop android applications without startup or size penalty. Scala, Clojure and Groovy all require its own runtime library distributed with the application, so they are out of the scope of this question.The only one language which claims to satisfy this goal is Charles Nutter's Mirah, but I couldn't make it to work on windows.To clarify a bit, I know any language has to have runtime library. Obviously, what I am looking for is a language that has no additional runtime required besides JRE, or at least very limited one.

Android :: Add French To Phone Dictionary So I Can Text In That Language Too?
Does anyone know of an app or a way to add French to the Android dictionary so that I can text in French without it always trying to correct it in English?

HTC Desire : Unable For Reading Korean Incoming SMS
So I got my HTC Desire (Telus/Canada) a few days ago, and I am a complete noob when it comes to smartphones, this being my first one - but I learn very fast when it comes to these things.
Anyways - my issue is regarding reading incoming Korean SMS. I've already searched the market and installed Korean Input Keyboard which allowed me to write Korean. I've even gone to the point of installing the Korean UI through More Locale 2 to make my interface all Korean.
Anyways, the strange thing is - I can read/write Korean on my Android MSN (MSN Talk), but I cannot read incoming Korean SMS texts that may come from my friends, but on the flip-side, they can read what I'm sending them in Korean. None of my friends have the Desire (but they have android phones) so I'm left alone to search the net for a solution.
I don't want to "root" my phone - as I've found out that removes the warranty on the phone (kind of like jail-breaking I guess). I would if I've had the phone for a good 1.5~2years but since I got it only a few days ago, I'd like to avoid this. Sorry if this is in the wrong section of the forum. MOD can just move it if they wish.
Motorola Droid :: Display Korean Letters In Imusic App?
I'm about to buy a Motorola Droid in five hours after much consideration and reading through forums. However, one question that has addressed me is whether or not the Droid has foreign language support, specifically Korean. I want to listen to some songs with Korean titles, but I'm not sure whether or not the Droid can display Korean letters in its music app. I've heard from previous Android users that 1.5 has difficulties displaying unicode letters and just makes them boxes, similar to the old Zunes (Lol fail player) which cannot support any Asian languages. Anybody have any experience with this?
ALSO regarding the Droid Eris. Is the on screen keyboard similar to the apple iPhone's (Response time, Sensitivity) or rather similar to the LG Dare (I despise this type of keyboard, slow, vibrate very uncoordinated). And since its running android 1.5 not 2.0, does this have problems with korean too?
HTC Hero :: Danish Language On French Phone

Can anybody tell me how to get the latest danish version on the HERO which is French?
HTC Magic :: T9 Language Vs GUI Language
I bought an HTC Magic today and, as I always did with other phones too, set the language to english. The problem is I happen to write a lot of messages (email and SMS) in italian too.Is there a way to set the completion language separately from the GUI language? Even better if during the editing of a message would be possible to switch the language, as possible with Nokia phones.Please note that in the subject I mentioned erroneusly T9 which has nothing to do with completion, as I now learned.
Android :: Which Phone Has Best Developer Support
I've had my Moto Droid since just after the release and since rooting and ROMing in January, I'm really becoming more obsessed. Cyanogen has had a huge affect (for the better!) on my Android experience. Just curious what phone you guys think has the biggest developer community. (I'm obviously going with DROID ). I'd love to also hear the opinions of those with multiple Android phone experiences.
