How do I add other languages to the virtual keyboard of my Galaxy Tab E LTE and use them?

Last Update Date : Apr 09. 2018

Adding Language

You can choose which languages are available on the keyboard, in the settings menu. To switch between languages, slide the space bar sideways, while using the virtual keyboard.

Note: Screens and settings available may vary by wireless service provider and software version.

Adding a Language

1. From the Home screen, touch Apps 1.

2. Touch Settings 1.

3. Scroll to and touch Language and input 1.

4. Touch Samsung Keyboard.

Language 1

5. Touch 1 Add input languages.

Language 2

6. Scroll down and touch icon_download.png to download the corresponding additional language. The language will be activated by default. You can repeat the operation as many times as necessary.

Language 3

Note: You might be asked to ALLOW Handwriting DB Updater to access photos, media, and files on your device. This is required to obtain language updates but not necessary to use the language.

7. Swipe your finger from bottom to top to access the Downloaded languages list. If an update is available for any of the language, an UPDATE button will appear next to it. Touch UPDATE to update the corresponding language.

Switching Keyboard Input Language

You can switch the keyboard input language anytime, while you are using the virtual keyboard. To illustrate this example, we used the Memo app but you can use any other app.

1. Launch the Samsung keyboard by touching in any available text field (if required).

2. Touch and slide the SPACE bar side to side to select your preferred keyboard input language.
