Samsung Galaxy Note 8: How To Change Languages

One of the best phones in 2017, Samsung Galaxy Note 8 ended up in all the corners of the world. With so many and different buyers, it was expected that the device will come with lots of flexibility regarding its language. This means that from English to French, Spanish, or German to Korean and other, more exotic languages, one can select pretty much anything.


Just so you know, when you decide to do this kind of change, all the apps and the user interface settings included, third-party apps and pretty much anything you can think of, will switch to the new language. The only thing left will be to make a manual change to the keyboard language as well.

The reason why the keyboard remains the same even when you change the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 language is simple – the keyboard can support more than one language at the same time. You have to separately set the languages you want to have access to, on the keyboard, and swipe the space bar to switch from one language to another.


To change the system language:

  1. Go to Settings;
  2. Tap on My Device;
  3. Select Input and Control;
  4. Select Language and Input;
  5. Select Language;
  6. After following this path, you will get to a list of available languages, from where you can select the one you want to use.


To change the keyboard language:

  1. Go back to Settings;
  2. Select System;
  3. Select Language and Input;
  4. Find the Keyboard option;
  5. Tap the gear icon from its proximity;
  6. Chose the new language;
  7. Check or uncheck other languages that you want to have or to give up on;
  8. Return to the keyboard and test to see if you can use those languages by swiping the space bar.


Haven’t you found the language you needed?

  1. Prepare to root your Samsung Galaxy Note 8;
  2. Download and run the MoreLocale 2;
  3. Once you’ve opened the MoreLocale 2, tap on the option from near the top, custom locale;
  4. Select the ISO639 button;
  5. Select the ISO3166 button;
  6. After selecting the country and the language from the options available in the list, use the Set button for the changes to take effect.


With these last instructions, you should really be able to select any language that you want to have on the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. Whether it’s for the entire system or just for the keyboard, you know what you have to do!
