    It's easy to add languages to SwiftKey, just:

    1. Open your SwiftKey app
    2. Tap 'Languages'
    3. Select a language pack from the list. You'll note that your 'Suggested Languages' will appear first. You're also able to search using the search bar.
    4. Tap 'Download'. Your newly downloaded language pack will be enabled by default unless you already have two languages in use.

    3 - How to remove a Language Pack

    To remove or delete a language from SwiftKey:

    1. Open SwiftKey
    2. Tap ‘Languages’
    3. Tap 'Edit'
    4. Press the red 'Delete' symbol next to the language you want to remove
    5. Confirm your selection

    Note: Removing a language pack won't affect any of your previously learned words saved to your SwiftKey Account. 

    4 - How to switch Language layouts

    To type with two languages using the same keyboard layout:

    1. Open SwiftKey
    2. Tap ‘Languages’
    3. Ensure that both of your enabled languages have the same layout (i.e. QWERTY) selected
