Change System Language on Android: Bought a phone from China or pick the wrong language while setting up your phone? Don’t freat? You can quite easily modify the system language on your Android phone by moving into the settings. You can also add many languages as you like. The languages are helpful for bilingual users. We’ll display you how to do it in this easy guide.

How to change the system language on your Android phone

To make things quite easier for you, I move to the language on my phone to Simplified Chinese (the language that’s installed by default on phones in China). However, in this article below I’ll show you how to change the Chinese language into English.

For the purposes of this article, we used a OnePlus 7 Pro. But you can use any Android phone and all the steps will be the same.

Step 1:

Firstly, Open Settings from the app drawer or home screen.

Step 2:

Now move down to the bottom of the page.

Step 3:

Click System (gear icon).

Step 4:

Click Language & input (globe icon).

Step 5:

Click Languages (icon with multilingual characters).

Step 6:

Select “Add a language” (plus button).

Step 7:

Select a language from the list.

Step 8:

Some languages have their own regions. Pick a region for your desired language.

Step 9:

Once the language is added, press and hold the two horizontal lines simultaneously and move your required language to the top.

That’s all! You can also add so many languages as you like or just modify the order to switch your phone’s system language. If you don’t immediately view the language changing, you may then need to restart your device for the changes to take effect.


Android also supports lots of languages, including both U.K. and U.S. English, several types of French, Chinese, Spanish, and much more. Which language you’ve to change in your Android? Let us know in the comments section below!
