    Language swap while texting.

    At times I send texts to folk in Spain. Mostly written in English, but at times l want to insert paragraphs in Spanish. This is fairly simple with the laptop.. just press shift + alt and the change is made. Anyone able to give this old fella a clue as to how.. can it be done on
    my N4 ?. As things stand l have to do two texts cos l can't change mid-way. Apart from this l'm chuffed with it.. and for an old-un l'm finding
    my way around reasonably well ( still battling with some things though ).

    Go to settings then Language and Input
    Make your Default keyboard - Android keyboard
    Click on the settings of the Android keyboard
    Click Input languages
    Normally the first option is clicked which is "Use system language", Uncheck that so that the other languages will not be grayed out anymore
    Choose the language you like. In your case, English and Spanish
    Exit all the way
    Now when you send an sms, long press on the space bar and you can change the language on the fly

    Another option is to use a 3rd party keyboard like SwiftKey. With it you have the option of placing in up to 3 languages and prediction for all 3 are automatic
