    Hi, i hope this is not too ambitious but I want to edit the english language in android!!

    I have no coding knowledge but I feel i should be able to pull this off.

    What I want to do is basically replace the english language with a shorthand english .
    Eg.
    Change ,
    1)Settings to Sett.
    2)Back to Bck . Etc

    Is this something i will be able to pull off with help?? Or do I need to learn the whole coding language deal ??
    Any response is greatly appreciated!!!

    mikedt 你好

    I think you'd definitely need to build a custom version of Android for your phone or tablet with the languages changes you want made to it. I'm not a dev myself, but I think it would be rather ambitious, especially if you have no experience. FYI everything you need to know about Android development should be here. https://source.android.com/setup

    Thanks but this is not it..it's abit more complicated that that...I'm talking about the system language .

    Like how you would reverse engineer an apk to edit the app language...i thought it wouldnt be too complicated to do it with the system language since I can even change the fonts on a rooted phone with just a root explorer.

    Theres a post about it , that's almost the same...it has to do with adding custom locales...basically system languages!!!
    (Like Hindi, Tagalog,Korean. Etc)

    I thought editing those locales would do the trick but I can't seem to find anything on the interwebs!!

    If it's gonna take to build a whole android rom....i would have to abandon ship..still hopeful it's not complicated...still searching...lol

    Edit :-
    Ive rooted my phone and installed xposed but everytime I try to flash xposed framework, I keep bricking my phone... I don't know whats the problem.
    I have a 4 year old phone running
    Android Oreo 8.1.
    Architecture - Arm
    I don't know if im doing something wrong on my end but I've read up every article I can on XDA forums and watched a lot of YT tutorials.
    But I can't get it right.
    And I don't even know if xposed can get me what I want.
    I don't know 1 line of code so it's pretty hard for me.

    I'm a 3D student, so before I get in too deep, I have to abandon this.
    I wanted to do this for a video, Ill try to achieve what I want with editing!!

    I'd love to continue it some time in the future!
    Hopefully I will.

    Thanks for all those who helped!!
