I normally use Google Keyboard US with Swype enable to write my text messages.

But sometimes I need to input Chinese characters, therefore I switch from my (main) google keyboard (in which I use swype) to Samsung Chinese IME.

This is simply achieved with 1 step: I simply click on the keyboard icon showing a world-globe (left from space bar and right from "," and I select Samsung Chinese IME.

Doing so the Samsung Chinese IME automatically becomes the default keyboard.

In order to switch back, since the world-globe icon is NOT ANYMORE there, under Samsung IME, I need to:
1. go to settings
2. clinck on My Device
3. click on Language and input > here I see that the default keyboard is NOT Samsunch Chinese IME
4. Select English (US) Google Keyboard

Only after 4 steps I am able to revert back to my google swype keyboard!

Is there a shortcut?

I am trialing SlideIT, but it seems that it does NOT contain Chinese IME.

Same goes for Google IME: it has many languages, bit NOT Chinese...at least on my version.

Thank you!

If you know a way to add Chinese to my Google Keyboard, than I would have solved my problems..

Thank you

I am trying another IME, called SwiftKey, but it does NOT offer Chinese input...

So I still need to switch back and forth from google keyboard to Samsung Chinese IME...
Please any idea?

No ideas on how to make the switching among IME Keyboards?

I haven't get any more replies, so let me ask a different question: does anybody know a SWYPE style keyboard capable to input Chinese in addition to English and French?

Thank you!

I think Google keyboard supports Chinese, just google it, or take a look at the play store...
For other keyboards, try Swype keyboard or Xperia keyboard (this one you can find here in xda).
