As much as English is an internationally-known language, not all the Samsung users who know it will also want to use it on their devices. That’s why the manufacturer decided to give Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus users a much-appreciated option of changing the system’s language. Moreover, one can install and use – at the same time! – more than one language on the stock keyboard. Both options will be explained to you below, so, go ahead and enjoy this useful tutorial on how to change language settings on Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus
To Choose A Different Language On Galaxy S9 And Galaxy S9 Plus…
- Go to the Settings menu of your smartphone;
- Open the tab labeled as My Device, which should be listed somewhere at the top of the window;
- Find the Input & Control option and select it;
- Next, select the Language & Input feature from there;
- Finally, select the Language option;
- You’ll then see a list of available languages that can be enabled right away;
- Select the one you want, confirm the changes, and leave the settings.
Do not worry if the language you were planning on using isn’t listed in that window! Assuming you couldn’t find it, you can always root the device and take a few simple extra steps:
- Root Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus device;
- Download the MoreLocal 2 app from here;
- Install MoreLocale 2 and run it;
- Find the Custom Locale option, near the top of the app, and tap it;
- Find the two buttons ISO639 and ISO3166 and tap them, choosing the country and the desired language from that list of options;
- When you’ve made your choices, hit the Set button and you’re done.
Now that you’ve made it possible to change the system language as you wanted, even with a language that wasn’t available in the list of defaults, let us show you one more trick.
