Can I change or add a new language to the Xperia device?

    Applicable to

    • Android® 12
    • Android® 11
    • Android 10
    • Android 9

    The languages available on your Xperia® device depend on the region or market in which the device is released. Available languages are found in the Language & input settings.
    It's impossible to change the list of menus or writing languages preloaded in your Xperia device. However, as far as writing languages are concerned, you can search in the Google Play™ store for third-party apps that may provide you with a virtual keyboard.

    Note: Sony doesn't warrant or guarantee the performance of any third-party applications, nor does Sony warrant or guarantee the performance of content downloaded or acquired in other ways through such applications. For more information and support on any third-party application, we suggest contacting its developer.

    Android 12, 11, 10, or 9.0

    1. Find and tap SettingsSystemLanguages & inputLanguages.
    2. If the language you want to set is missing, tap Add a language and select it from the list by tapping on it.
    3. Tap and hold the two/four horizontal lines to the right of the language you want to change to, and drag the item to the top of the list.
