Accepted Solution

Language panel

Hello,

 

I'll start with saying that I'm a complete new Blackberry user, so I'll be posting a lot of questions in the near future. Sorry for the inconvenience;-)

 

Lately I was playing around with the options menu on my Blackberry Bold. Just to try I changed the display language to English (my native language is Dutch). When I returned later to change the language back, the complete language panel had disappeared. I couldn't change anything whatsoever! I'm not having difficulties with understanding English, but it's very annoying that the spell checker puts a line under every Dutch (German, French, etc.) word I type.

 

I read in the manual that I can add languages to my Bold with the Desktop Manager, but: I have a Mac! So I can't use that program. Is there another solution to make my Bold Dutch again? Many thanks in advance.

Re: Language panel

In "Options - Localisation" set Dutch language as "Language" and as "Input language" and as "Voice dialing language".

 

Save settings.

 

Also when you're typing text click simultaneously on two keys: Alt key and Enter key (is at the right side of keyboard, with arrow on it, it is opposite to Alt key on the keyboard).

 

The popup will be displayed to select current "Input language" to be used in text you are typing. Select a relevant language and click Enter.

Re: Language panel

Oh, I see where it went wrong! In English it's called "Localisation" where I was looking for the word "Language" (That's how the option is called in Dutch). That was very easy indeed! Also many thanks for the alt+enter hint.

Re: Language panel

Hai, there. I recently had my phone language and input language set to Dutch (Netherlands) and it worked fine, but then I set it back to english to save a number when I was drunk but now the language options are only english, english (US) and english (UK). Do i have to install a language pack or somthing?
