    Hey guys, newbie here to the forums, just picked up my Hero two days ago and so far I love it!

    Except, of course, for one small detail. I'm bilingual, and a lover of Latina women (more info than you needed to know, I know!), so I am constantly switching back and forth between sending texts in English and in Spanish. Is there a way for my phone to recognize words in both English and Spanish? As it stands now, I'm having a hell of a time sending Spanish texts because it keeps suggesting words in English. Thanks in advance for your help!

    I have a need for this too, and I found a solution that works for me...

    I use the native Messages application on my HTC Hero, and this works great for texting for me. For English, no problem, the standard word dictionary works well. For Spanish, I downloaded and installed Better Keyboard, as it has support for Spanish. I keep Better Keyboard configured for Spanish only.

    So, when I text, I just press and hold the input box to prompt the input method--choose Better Keyboard when I want Spanish, or press and hold the input box to select Touch Input. It's quick and works well, since I never have to leave the app or even the current message to switch back and forth.

    My phone has turned bilingual, too, thanks to me lol. When I browse the internet and I have to post something in Spanish using my phone, for example, like on Facebook or some other site, I always use good grammar, like accents and stuff that we Spanish speakers [should] use, but when I text people in Spanish, I still use good spelling, except for the fact that I don't use characters like
