    We need a keyboard in order to give you an example of exactly what I'm talking about.
    To do that, I'm going to enter the messaging application. I can find that on my home screen up here, where the "message bubble" tile is. Yours may be in a different place on the home screen, as I have configured my home screen to make it more esthetically appealing.

    Now we can see that we have the keyboard in front of us and we can see that it is in the Latin alphabet.
    If you look down at the bottom here you can see "ENG". That tells us the keyboard is in English.

    We can start to type in Bengali and I can type it down here so you can see.

    The languages available will depend on the languages you have added in your Lumia settings.
