    You need to go into settings/controls/language and input/ where the 'samsung keyboard is greyed out hit the settings button to the right of it then hit 'select input languages, then choose your languages by putting a tick in each box.
    Then when typing on the keyboard you can select different languages by holding the spacebar and moving left or right.

    Have same problem on Galaxy Grand2, android 4.3. Worked before but not now. Settings OK as advised but doesn't work!
    Restart doesn't fix. Clear keyboard data and turn on/off doesn't help!
    Help help
