Android :: Switch Language On Keyboard

Mar 18, 2010

Most SMS I send are in Portuguese (Brazil), is there any way I could set the stock keyboard to suggest Portuguese words instead of English? I have set it to Portuguese (as a general setting), but the suggestions on the keyboard are still in English. I would like to have the general language to be English and be able to change the language for the keyboard as needed.

Motorola Droid X :: APP - ROOT - Keyboard - Keyboard Manager - Dual Keyboard - Portrait - Landscape Switch

Nov 10, 2010

I tried it and it works so far.

Dev = ne0fhyk from XDA.

From the XDA forum: Link to app page = [APP][ROOT/Keyboard] Keyboard Manager - Dual keyboard: Portrait/landscape switch - xda-developers

Verbage:

Keyboard Manager allows you to customize what keyboard (input method) appear on input based on your phone orientation.
It displays the keyboards you have enabled on your android device, and let you select one per orientation (landscape/portrait).
As your phone switch orientation, the app automatically switch the keyboard.

Requirements:
- Rooted android device (app was tested on Samsung captivate 2.1)
- Root Explorer app, or similar app that allows you to edit the permissions of a file.

To install:
1- Download the app (KeyboardManager.apk) on your device sdcard.
2- Using Root Explorer, move the apk file to /system/app
3- Using Root Explorer, edit the file permissions like below:
-- User: 'Read/Write' checked
--Group: 'Read' checked
--Others: 'Read' checked
4- Exit Root Explorer

The app should be visible in your launcher as 'Keyboard Manager'

Update:
- Added option to disable notification icon
-' start on boot' feature is disabled because it's not yet complete and tested... Sorry for the confusion

Bugs:
-On certain applications (i.e: Messaging on Samsung Captivate), the input window occasionally freeze on orientation switch. Exiting the app, and resuming should fix it.

The app is still in development.

Android :: Better Keyboard - Switch From T9 Keyboard To Regular Qwerty Keyboard

Apr 18, 2010

For those of you that are familiar with better keyboard. I was wondering about an easy way to switch from the t9 keyboard to the regular qwerty keyboard. I was under the impression that swiping left would toggle between the 2 but all that does is bring me to the numbers and symbols keyboard. I've been changing back and forth to the android keyboard because its faster than going into the better keyboard settings.

General :: Automatic Spell Check Language Switch?

Jan 15, 2014

I often switch between english and french when writing texts and it's annoying to always have to switch between english and french spell check (hold the space button or globe button and select language).

Is there some app or option that allows for the language to get detected and spell check to be changed automatically?

I am using 4.4.2 on nexus 4.

Android :: German Language Keyboard For Shapewriter?

Sep 14, 2010

I have the Shapewriter keyboard v 3.0.9 - I love it and I would like to install the German language add on but it is not available in the Market anymore.

1) Is the language add on just a different keyboard layout or does it actually recognize the German words?

2) I found and downloaded com.shapewriter.android.imlanguage.german.apk but I cannot seem to install it. I get a Parse Error when I try to install using an app installed from the SD card... since it is an add on to another app do I need to install it is a different way?

3) If this file is not correct for my version, does anyone have the file or can you tell me where to download it?

General :: How To Add Japanese As Language Input For Android Keyboard

Feb 26, 2012

I was wondering if there was a way to add Japanese as an language input for the Android keyboard? By default, there is no option to add Japanese as a llanguage input, and all other keyboards that have it are either ugly, don't have ICS as an optional theme or just too much, I prefer the stock Android keyboard on ICS over anything else and I'm sure there are some of you that agree. It would be nice to have this and other possible languages as optional languages on this keyboard.

Android :: Extending Soft Keyboard With Language Switching Support?

Apr 21, 2010

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?

HTC Desire :: Add Keyboard Language?

Apr 16, 2010

I just received my HTC Desire, which is great. My main problem with it so far is that the keyboard only supports English and French, and I need to write in Spanish. I've seen other people saying theirs additionally supports Spanish and Italian - is there any way I could add those languages? I only seem to have English and French locales, can I install new locales? I realise there are a number of third party keyboards, but I really like the default one.

HTC Wildfire :: Keyboard Input And Language

Aug 10, 2010

I live in Belgium, the Dutch part, and we use AZERTY keyboards here. My phone is in Dutch, but I could only choose "Dutch (The Netherlands)". In the Netherlands they speak dutch but use QUERTY. So, what I did was leave my phone in "Dutch (The Netherlands)", but I am using the French AZERTY keyboard.

The problem is, that the autocorrect now is also in French. When i typ a word the autocorrect shows a dutch suggestion, a french sugestion and an english suggestion. By default (pressing the spacebar) the phone chooses the French suggestion. Is there anyway to have an AZERTY keyboard and have the Dutch suggestion by default?

General :: V4.2 Swpye Keyboard With Other Language

Jan 28, 2013

I just tried out Android 4.2 swype feature and I think it is really cool. Although, my mother language is not English, so I downloaded a Hungarian dictionary to my device. So far so good... But unfortunately, swype is not working for my language, although it works for English.

Also, it suggests words to correct my badly typed words, but it doesn't auto correct them.

I have set everything in the Language & input to make this work in Hungarian, but unfortunately no luck so far.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: Keyboard Language When Texting

Aug 23, 2010

The screen on the X10 mini pro is pretty small, but why make it even smaller when texting by taking up the bottom portion of the screen with the language of the keyboard? I do not envisage myself ever needing to change the keyboard language, well except for when I have changed it by mistake, by accidently hitting the language bar that shouldnt be there?

General :: Stock Android Keyboard - Switch To Numpad

Feb 27, 2013

Is it possible, while typing with the stock android keyboard (Jelly Bean) to switch to the Numpad? I've uploaded two pictures to make things clear. the normal android keyboard. In the second one you see the numpad, but which only occurs if the text field only allows numerical input. What I want is to switch from the normal keyboard to the numerical one.

Example: I am writing a note (in my fav. note app) or a sms. In this note/sms I type some longer Numbers (wlan-key, phone number, birthday... you name it). This is when I want to switch to the numpad, because I cannot describe how much I hate to input numbers when they are not in a 3x3 grid (like a numpad).

In the stock Android Keyboard, when I press the number button (bottom left) the numbers appear in a ROW on the top. I honestly don't get how people can type numbers with this. I want to keep this kind of short

Swype has this feature: either hold the numbers key next to the swype button. Or swype from the swype-key to the t and the numpad appears. Really nice!

this is possible for the Android keyboard.I tried a lot of different keyboards and only swype had both: swype input and numpad. I think a numpad for numerical input is the best way to go.

General :: Samsung Keyboard No Longer Has Chinese Input Language After Reset

Jan 23, 2014

I'm using a Galaxy Note 2 GT-N7105

I used to use the Samsung Keyboard with English and the Chinese language input (downloaded in it's language settings).

But after a hard rest (My phone had recently updated itself to 4.3 with no change) I no longer have Chinese as a downloadable language.

WHY is this so annoying... Becuase if I use another keyboard that has chinese I can't swap between it and the Samsung Keyboard in Keyboard. The Samsung has to be selects in the phone setting and can't be selected as one of many keyboards.

The reason why I wish to use the Samsung keyboard is becuase of its great swipe input function. I have not found another keyboard that has swipe in English and Chinese input funtionality.

Which means I can never using any combo of keyboards swap easily from chinese to swipe english keyboard.

I think It has something to do with the locale version of the 4.3 android os. I heard that different locales have different downloadable language options. But why has mine sudenly changed!

Keyboard Shortcut To Switch Off Connection

Nov 23, 2011

Any keyboard shortcut to switch off the signal/connection while you have the emulator running in Eclipse?

I need to test that a certain part of the app will function if the device loses signal while the app is running. I believe you can switch the connection off prior to starting the app but I need a connection to start the app and then need it to drop after that.

Android :: JVM Based Language Without Language Runtime

Sep 8, 2010

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.
