Kit Guide: How to change the language on a Samsung smart phone


Setting a new language on your phone can be a bit tricky. This step by step guide will show you how to get your phone working with whichever language you want.

Changing the system language


The system language is the language used by your phone for menus, settings and some notifications. We'll also show you how to change the keyboard language later in this guide.

Samsung Language 1

From your Home screen, go to Settings and choose the System tab.

Changing the keyboard language


As well as the system language, you can also change the keyboard language. This lets you type in any language you want. Here's how it's done.

Samsung Language 2

From your Home screen, go to Settings System Language and input.

Now that you've added another language, you'll be able to switch between your active languages from the keyboard.

When you open the keyboard (to write a message, or send an email, etc), you'll see the current language written on the keyboard. Just swipe left or right to choose the language you want to use.

Hopefully you've got the language set the way you want on your Samsung smart phone, but if you'd like any more help, you can contact one of our Team Knowhow experts here.
