  10. 10
    Here, we need the second option from the top, "Bilingual prediction, Suggest words in two languages." This option does exactly what it says it will do
    .
    It allows us to have two different types of text for two different languages. This is useful if we are switching between languages, or talking to people in a mixture of two languages, which is very common throughout the world. People like to use some words from one language, and some words from the other.

    In order to set up this function, press down on this section
    .
    It's going to give us a warning that says, "Bilingual prediction, Bilingual prediction is available only when using a Latin-based keyboard." We cannot use, for example, a Chinese alphabet, with English. We cannot have "Bilingual prediction" for two different alphabets. It has to be a Latin based alphabet. Press down on the word "OK".
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  12. 12
    Here, we have the option to select our second language
    .
    Right now, "None" is selected. There is a green circle to the right of the word. Let's scroll down, until we find the language that we want.
