        I really enjoy using your SwiftKey keyboard, but I live and work in mainland China and need to communicate in Chinese and English via email or text. But unfortunately there is no Chinese language for SwiftKey... Since a third of the world's population is Chinese I would have thought that the Chinese language would be part of the keyboard... Is there any way to update this?
        Thanks

        change to TouchPal X keyboard. Unless they do something significant, which is VERY unlikely seeing the fact that this issue haven't been solved since 2011. Period, and thanks for the contribution so far SwiftKey.

      • Dennis IsipDennis Isip commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        It would be a great idea! And also another feature that can write those characters as if to draw them. I'm also a huge fan of swiftkey !

      • Greedy Selfish SwiftKeyGreedy Selfish SwiftKey commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I echo everyone's comments here, ten-fold. I think it's a complete joke (on us) that SwiftKey still hasn't provided Chinese. I believe these guys actually could have done this a long time ago, but has been holding back. Perhaps they've been wondering how to monetize SwiftKey for China/Chinese given that Google Play (app store) is not available in China and/or that Chinese may not pay for just another keyboard (e.g., that probably doesn't have any additional benefits vs. other Chinese keyboards). If this is the case, I believe they have been totally ignoring their current/loyal users' while they figure this out.

        I also think it's a total joke that SwiftKey was profiled in the New York Times this week, with one of its co-founders, Ben Medlock, quoted as saying, "China represents the next billion smartphone users," (implying that SwiftKey is actually focused on China), with the article also stating that SwiftKey, "soon plans to introduce a Chinese edition." We've been hearing this for years. Yeah, "Soon." A few years and counting...

        Companies like Swiftkey are, themselves, a joke. They want to come off as a holier-than-thou tech innovator (e.g., "making the world a better more efficient place"), yet actually disadvantage their loyal (i.e., PAYING!!!) customers while they figure out out their future gameplan for more $$$. Trust me, they could have released Chinese years ago (just like every other also-ran keyboard developer already has). Instead, they've just chosen to sit on it despite pleas by its paying users.

        These guys are no better than any other greedy selfish company who doesn't care about their past customers. I hope their plan for China backfires and all the Chinese recognize that these guys are just another bunch of foreign devils trying to profit off of the local population! Haha.

        Yes agree with most of the people in here. Would appreciate if I can be able to have the chinese & japanese input from swiftkey keyboard

      • bonbonbonbon commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I tried to register a SwiftKey account; however, in "primary_lang", there are only "Chinese-HK" and "Chinese-CN". Where is Taiwan??? We use different input than those two.

        Or maybe we should just stop finding any interest on this app @@

      • Jie samaJie sama commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Although your app is now available free now
        I still hope you could support Chinese and Japanese input..
        Since I use both of them...

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Hey Evan, I would like to beta test Mandarin Chinese but I get this error. I hate switching keyboards, but I use swiftkey less and less because of the lack of pin yin input

        This has been a consistent frustration of mine. I love Swiftkey, but I'm getting tired of switching keyboards every time I need to type in Mandarin Chinese.

        Let's speed this up!
