additional language support

Recommended Posts

Here is the interesting situation I'm in.

I bought this phone to give to my parents as gift. They are not going to be using a Vodafone SIM, so I unlocked it.

I also upgraded it to VDF-995NB01-UK_MR01d

Since my parent's native language is Portuguese, I then went to language settings.. Guess what. Only a few languages are supported, not Portuguese.

What are my options at this point? Not sure why not all languages appear there. Any ideas?

There are a couple of apps in Play store that are supposed to enable languages, but I doubt they'll work.

What if I flash the stock portuguese rom? Would that be an option? Is it even possible or will it mess things up?

As discussed in other thread, remove /system/etc/language.xml to 'unlock' all (~60) locales that are included in the ROM. Or just add portuguese (pt_PT, pt_BR) to that list if that's the only one you need.

I can't because I don't have a device. I've checked the framework of SU6 stock ROM and there's translations for ~60 locales (including Polish) as I said above. You can either add Polish (pl_PL) to /system/etc/language.xml or remove the file all together which should unlock all locales. Make a nandroid backup in TWRP before messing with your system. There's no harm in trying.

Wish they had a language for English (Ireland). It's super minor, but if you use the Engligh (UK) language, then swiftkey has the £ symbol on the X key, whereas if it's English (Ireland) it's the € symbol. I need the € much more than the £...

Oh actually, this worked for me (was able to set language as English (Ireland). Thanks!

Hi,

Any way to get language support if you cannot root the phone? Its already at 6.0.1 and I can't root it. 

Settings>Language & Input>Android Keyboard>Languages, uncheck 'Use system language'
