    Hero came with English, French, Italian and Spanish keyboards pre-installed. I've tried Russian keyboard app, but its not really useful without word completion and spell correction. Is there such a thing as android language packs to add another keyboard layouts with dictionaries?

    I dont know how many languages pack they have available yet ... but checkout TouchPal Welcome to CooTek - TouchPal, an innovative soft keyboard

    The say on the home page 20+ languages ... but on the Market i only see Language packs for French, English, Simple Chinese, and German ...

    and email to them might get you more info or their plans for release ...

    Hi,
    Reviving an old Thread.
    I'm in a similar situation.
    I switch back and forth between French and English and I would love my droid to correct my French (I'm fine with either qwerty or azerty, i don't care about that).
    I looked up "TouchPal" in the market, but impossible to find!

    In the iPhone the keyboard and the system languages are separated, so this is not a problem... but in the Android it is.

    Installing a new keyboard with a different layout and/or different language solves the problem, allowing the phone to be in language A and for the text typed and the suggestions to be in language B.

    So, for now, you can search the marketplace for an additional keyboard. To fast change the keyboard you have to touch and hold a text area, and change the method input
