I've found some general guide for that there, but I'm not sure, if that will work - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2281254
Could you please try it or tell me the options? The fastest solution is usually to flash some other ROM with full language support by default, but this device is so new, that the custom ROMs currently don't exist.
Thank you for your help
The simplest way is the morelocale2 app - with this you can see that which language is "installed".
The hardest way - translate the apps. - Previously I translated the Motorola Atrix 2 ICS & JB's factory rom and the MIUI V5 to Hungarian Language. I'm sorry to read that in Hungarian wont officially planned the distribution of MOTO G - therefore I start the Hungarian translation on Friday
This is the method:
You need java jdk(after install you need integrate the place of the java file to the enviroment value - path) and the latest android sdk (just copied the adt-bundle-windows_x86-64 to the C:\Program Files) installed on your computer. Then you need the latest apktool.1.5.2, and the install package fromhere
- coiped the unziped archives to C:\Windows
I use TotalCommander - i put the apktool.jar and the app which is need to be translateted (and the framework files) in one folder, then "cmd" comand and install the framework files first:
apktool if framework-res.apk
Then decompile the apps (67 apps has language files, for some reason the DeskClock.apk not working):
apktool d-s xy.apk
In the decomplied folder there is a res folder in this, you need to create a new folder - values-cz (czech) or values-sl (slovak). You need to see what in the original values-zh-rCN (China is the folder I'm writing it because it was already a good starting point on the Atrix 2) or in the values-zh-rTW and you must create the same files in the values-cz folder (arrays.xml, strings.xml and plurals.xml). If there are raw-zh-rCN folder in the res folder, you need to create a raw-cz folder, and make the same files in it.
I think I will use the some quad-core Qualcom telephone 4.3 apps starting point.
If you complete one .apk, you most recompile the folder
apktool b xy
(only the folder name does not have the .apk's end)
then locate the folder [dist] subfolder in there you need to delete xy.apk (this is new. APK, but it is good for nothing, because they incorrectly signed)
Now there is a folder [build] folder, which contains the [apk] subfolder, now have to TotalCommander and one side - say the left - is the original apk that smooth TC in megnyitol and in there [META-INF] + AndroidManifest.xml is copied to - its sub-pages [apk], overwriting the files that are in there - it's just right.
Now and back again:
apktool b xy
and [dist] folder now has the right to use.
if the cmd drop an error log, you need to find the errors, which is displayed on the command line.
