    Please give further details.
    - What is your local language?
    - Do you mean in the OS (menus, etc) or they virtual keyboard?

    AFAIK the OS language is fixed (I'm pretending to be in the UK so I can have English menus), but there are tons of keyboard replacements in the Market.

    Personally, I use Scandinavian Keyboard and a Danish dictionary. :)

    I'm from Brazil and here we have a similar problem.

    After flashing the ROM we do have the pt-PT Locale but we don't have the pt-PT or pt-BR dictionary anymore.

    Is there a way to restore a dictionary?

    I guess they are talking about the dictionary used by the keyboard for input correction, word prediction and auto-completion.

    Though I suppose there may be keyboards in the Market with pt-PT or pt-BR dictionary.

    i was under the impression you could download a "user-dictionary" (not like a translator) and specify to use that with pretty much any keyboard? (which is what i meant in that earlier post)

    Yes, I was talking about the keyboard dictionary. :^)

    In Brazil the Market is only freeware enabled, so paid options aren't available.
    I'll check if there is a free option (anyone knows if there is one?).

    I have a Nandroid backup of my original firmware (that have the pt-BR dictionary). Is there a way to restore the keyboard dictionary?
    Kind of copy some files, etc. (my phone is rooted).

    Thanks guys!
