Can I use SwiftKey with more than one language?

SwiftKey allows you to use up to five languages simultaneously.

We’ve enhanced our multilingual support framework to make it even more effective, by constantly scanning input text to estimate which of the enabled languages are being used, and adjusting predictions accordingly. 

SwiftKey currently supports 190+ languages on Android. Click here to see the full list.

For languages with the same alphabet/layout, there is no need to switch between languages - you just start typing and SwiftKey figures out which language you are using!

For languages with different alphabets (i.e. English and Russian), simply slide left or right on the spacebar to switch between them.
