My Nexus 7 was playing up before travelling and sod’s law the first flight i got on towards America the screen gave up working completely. While i was away i took my tablet to be repaired by this guy in Cusco. He tried his best but said i needed a new screen which unfortunately he was unable to source quickly in Peru. He returned the tablet to me and left the language in Spanish without me realising. After returning home and seeing the extortionate prices to pay someone else to repair the tablet i decided to try and fix it myself. Only after replacing the screen i realised that i needed to Change The Android Language Setting On Nexus 7 2013. This is simple if you speak the other language but unfortunately after four months in South America my Spanish is still not up to scratch so i decided to write this article to help anyone in a similar situation. My Nexus 7 is currently on Android Marshmallow version 6.0.1 but it should be similar on other versions also.
How To Change The Android Language Setting On Nexus 7 2013
- Drag down the top tool bar and press on the cog. This should open up the Settings. Alternatively press the main apps button and click on the cog wheel here.
- Go down to the 3rd section (Personal) and click on the bottom left button. In English this reads “Language and Input.” In Spanish it reads “Teclado e Idioma”
- Press the top button which in English will read “Language” and in Spanish “Idioma”.
- Select whatever your chosen language maybe and voila you should be back in business.
- If all else fails and these layouts are not consistent across all languages then remember Google Translate is your friend.
If you have any questions or found the layout was slightly different in another language then please comment below and I will update this post.
Also as the guy repairing it was trying to diagnose issues with the display he had also enabled a setting which left trailing lines when touching it which i explain how to remove in my other article.
