SwiftKey for Android Now Support Over 200 Languages

Microsoft-owned SwiftKey announced this past week that its flagship keyboard app for Android now supports over 200 languages.

SwiftKey works on iOS as well, but the announcement pertains specifically to the Android version.

“We’ve added 7 new languages: Bislama, Limburgish, Lower Sorbian, Makhuwa, Nuosu, Silesian and Venetian,” the SwiftKey team announced on Friday. “This brings our total number of language models available to 205, with plans for more in the works.”

SwiftKey for Android had hit 150 languages back in February. Looking at the iOS version of the app, it appears to support only 22 languages: English, Arabic, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Slovak, Spanish, Swedish, Turkish

“With SwiftKey Keyboard on Android, you can type seamlessly in any five language models at the same time, without worrying about switching between keyboards or layouts,” the team notes. “Our goal is to keep making it easier for people speaking all languages in all corners of the world to communicate and we’re committed to preserving languages and working with you, the members of our community, to make that a reality.”

SwiftKey for Android is available for free from the Google Play Store.

The iOS version is available from Apple’s App Store.
