Default [Q] Enabling other languages?

Hi,
I'm currently waiting for my Moto G, it should come in next few days. So I want to ask you - is it possible to enable the other languages, which is normally available on the other Android devices? I mean european languages like Czech, Slovak, Bulgarian and so on...

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
many HTCs, 2 Nokias

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):

outwards:

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

inward:

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.

I have just received the global GSM version of the the Moto G sold in the US (system version 14.14.16.falcon_umts.Retail.en.US), which only comes with 4 languages:
- English
- Spanish
- Portuguese
- French

This paucity of languages is just absurd.

Since it is a gift for a relative in China, I needed the phone in Chinese. Luckily, the UK ROM does include Chinese as a system language (which I discovered at http://blog.clove.co.uk/2013/11/22/m...o-g-languages/), so I flashed the UK ROM following the instructions at http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2542219 .

I'm also waiting for this phone. I ordered it from amazon.de, now i know that my language will not be there, nevermind, English is also good. And i think, when/if will be CM or OMNI out for Moto G, more language will be there.
