Japanese is becoming quite popular nowadays especially among otaku (japan fans) and considering that japan is one of the top 3 countries... i think it is time for this language to be added in swiftkey because in order to write Japanese i need to change keyboards everytime... and i am probably not the only one
Please add support for Japanese keyboards Hiragana and Katakana, please I use them very often and I really miss them on my Phone.
Simply asking to add this
It'll more cool with japanese! I wait it
Please add Japanese as an input language.
Japanese language characters (hiragana) would be great.
It would be useful to add japaneese keyboard
The only smart phone keyboard I can find so far that includes Japanese input is the GO Keyboard. I would very much like to use Smart Key but I need a way of being able to type in Japanese on my phone.
Japanese language needed, please! Something like Google Japanese input, that is the best kanji completion example rich and smooth keyboard for Japanese
provide a Japanese language keyboard with hiragana, katakana, and kanji options.
Add a japanese language keyboard !
Please add full Japanese support with prediction and auto-correct.
Please support Japanese on your wonderful keyboard! Japanese is a huge market of not only native speakers. You've got Korean already please go the extra mile for Japanese as well. Arigatou!
Keyboard to type japanese kana
Some people needs to use more than three language. In my case, I need to write in Japanese. But there's no Japanese in the program. This will make go to setting and change the program. It is not making the writing easy for me. That's why I am asking from the maker please add Japanese language into this wonderful program. Thanks anyway.
Please add Japanese support, the application is great overall BUT there is no Japanese support and it's a big sorry for me.
Please add Japanese language support. thankyou
Add japanese language please :-)
SwiftKey is the best keyboard, but we need Japanese support.
I wish there was the Japanese language from the Swift X Key, study Japanese and I need to put it into practice! out to increase the target audience of the application.
Japanese Japanese JapaneseJapanese
Please add Japanese language support
I'm dying for a Japanese language option.
You got Korean on think you can get the time for chinese and Japanese?
I have a separate Japanese keyboard that I have to switch to every time I want to type in Japanese. It would be great to just stay in SwiftKey and be able to just switch without going thru "change input method" every time. Thanks!
Japanese, please. i bought this wonderful app but i can't use without japanese
I think it would be great to have a Chinese and Japanese keyboard so I can stay in touch with my family and friends.
more keyboards available, especially support for thai and Japanese.
It would be great to see Japanese as a language choice. Thank you for a great app.
I would like to see Japanese because I use it alot
Add Japanese language support please?
I just want Japanese language support. It would be really great for my everyday use. Thank you!

Dead link. Really want japanese.
Screw this. No updates after so long and it's not possible to get in contact on their VIP forum since you can't contact administrators and they won't verify if you create an account. Worst customer service ever.
Please make this happen soon. Many people applied for the beta test and are eager to see this feature.
It's been almost a month since the update about signing up for the beta. What's going on? With the 200+ responses you've gotten I'd assume it would be more of a priority. Is it going to take another three years until the beta?
Really need an update or ETA on this. Even though I prefer SwiftKey over Swype, i'll be working in Japan next month so I have no choice but to change to Swype.
Judging by how long ago Swiftkey said they were working on on the jp keyboard and lack of updates, I would not expect it to be released anytime soon.
Min Xuan Ng commented
SwiftKey removed my comment because I said there was an error making an account and I sounded sarcastic. Thanks :)
I like SwiftKey but I really need to send messages in Japanese as well. That's why I will not buy a full version, when will you add a Japanese? There is non popular languages added but I don't know why not Japanese? Japanese is popular thought
Sal Paradise commented
For all still waiting for Japanese support (don't hold your breath), I suggest moving on the Swype, which has a very effective Japanese keyboard that both my Japanese wife and myself use. "Test Japanese" What a joke. Never coming back to Swiftkey. Great job on losing customers.
Update on this please?
When will you add Japanese? I'm surprised that there is Korean and Chinese but not Japanese. Is there some kind of anti-japanese sentiment at your company? I like SwiftKey enough that I PAID for it but I've been waiting a year for this language to be added. Please add it already!
add english to japanese and japanese to english
Yayang Usman commented
Japanese is a must :)
Francis Maquilan commented
Judging by the fact that there has been no update since the idea was posted 3 YEARS AGO, on the situation it would be safe to assume that swiftkey doesn't have or no longer has the intention of adding Japanese integration. At this point I'm no longer holding my breath.....
I Love to talk Japanese, I need it! Please!!! Ikimasho "soldi non ne ho"
Alessandro Mascellino commented
I hope you're wrong Daniel Rand! We really need it, guys, or we'll be forced to move to Simeji.. The only actually good Japanese keyboard. Do your best! We're with you!
Sonia Quintanar commented
I am currently living in Japan and it would be really helpful if swiftkey integrate japanese. If it doesn't I'm afraid I'll have to stop using it eventually :(
Rachel Guinot commented
Integrate japanese on SwiftKey would be really appreciable indeed. Seems like I'm not the only one who need it !
I just started teaching myself Japanese and it would really be nice to finally get support for it from SwiftKey. :( I got so excited when I saw other people were interested and that the development team was even starting it...but then I saw this was posted almost a year ago. Now I am sad again.
I love Swiftkey, but i don't use it because of the lack of a Japanese keyboard. Please, please provide it.
