swiftkeySome of us come from multicultural countries and backgrounds, where ultimately the language we speak isn’t necessarily of a single language, but of multiple languages combined. For example in Singapore, English can be spoken but at the same time interspersed with bits of words or phrases from Malay, Mandarin, Hokkien, and so on.

This makes typing quite annoying simply because typically on smartphones, we only get to choose from one dictionary at a time. The good news is that if you’re looking to type up more languages at once, you might be interested in the latest SwiftKey beta. The latest beta for Android will now support up to 5 languages at once, whereas previously it only allowed a maximum of 2.

Now we’re not sure how many people would actually need to type up to 5 languages at once, but we guess at the very least the option is there if you need it. In addition to the 5 languages support, SwiftKey has also added new languages such as Sindhi Pakistan, Pashto, Scottish Gaelic, and Uyghur.

Note that the app is still in beta so if you’d rather wait for the final build, we can’t say with certainty when that will launch, but if you don’t mind taking the beta for a spin, you’ll be able to find it in the Google Play Store.
