Change language and input settings on your Galaxy phone

Bilingual students outside in a crowd

If you're bilingual or studying a new language, your Galaxy phone can help you out. You can set multiple languages on your phone and even set a different default language. It's great for practicing your language skills or just using the language you're most comfortable with.

Note: Available screens and settings may vary by wireless service provider, software version, and phone model.

Add or remove languages

You're trying to learn Spanish, but you aren't quite there yet. Add it as a language on your phone, so you can practice reading and writing in it.

From Settings, search for and select Add language. From there, select your desired language. If you don't see the language you are looking for, tap More options (the three vertical dots), tap All languages, and then select your desired language. Next, based on your preferences, tap Keep current or Set as default.

English listed at the default language

To delete languages, navigate to Settings, search for and select Language and input. Tap Language, and then tap Edit. Select the language you want to delete, and then tap Remove. Tap Remove again to confirm.

Change the default language

If you're finally fluent in the language you've been studying, you can change the default language on your phone.

From Settings, search for and select Language. Tap Language, and then select the language you want to be the default language. Tap Apply to confirm.
