Want To Create Your Own Dictionary For Your Android’s Keyboard?
We all love the ability to have localization on our devices. For those of us for whom the English language is a second or even third tongue, it can be quite useful. However, they dictionaries included with the Gingerbread keyboard seem to be somewhat lacking. Luckily, addressing this problem is not impossible and thanks to XDA member navdra, we now know how we can add our very own personalized dictionaries to the keyboard. The dev did this as a result of Gingerbread not coming equipped with a Croatian option.The most important thing is probably to ensure that your source is as accurate as possible, but other than that, the process is simple and very well laid out.
Please leave some feedback and if you feel like sharing your customized dictionaries, please do so as well.
