Responsive keyboard that supports over 50 languages
If, for whatever reason, you find yourself needing to use a keyboard in a different language or dialect, then the MultiLing Keyboard app for Android is a surprisingly small yet very functional app that will help you get the job done.
Taking a Look at the MultiLing Keyboard Android App
So, why would you ever need a keyboard that writes in a different language than your native language? Well, say you're a bilingual writer who's going to do some translation work, but the characters you need are Russian or Greek, etc, and they're not available on your English keyboard. In instances like these, and many more you could think of, having an app like the MultiLing Keyboard could come in handy and help you make quick work of your translations. Or perhaps you just want to write in another language. Whatever the reasons, this free app is a great way for you to explore an entire world outside of your native tongue, and the actual file size here is incredibly small and compact, yet the program itself is powerful.
It has a custom-tailored database that allows you to create gesture shortcuts and to actually add words to the dictionary. Though if you're downloading a keyboard in Russian yet need one in Chinese, you'll have to download a new pack with the specific language you're seeking. Overall, however, this is a very highly rated app for the Android OS that will actually work with any Android version. So even if you're still holding onto that old device and haven't upgraded yet, you can still use this app.
