This app allows you to create shortcuts and choose which language each shortcut will use.

Extremely useful for people who like to use the phone in english and want to use a specific app on another language!

EXAMPLE: android system in english and run google maps in portuguese

Using a localized shortcut is slower because it has to change the language and then change it back after exiting the app. Please be patient!

The localization depends on the 3rd party app, this app will not translate it!

Android does not have support to launch applications on different languages. The workaround is to change the system language during the app execution.

You should use ISO639 languages (en, pt, fr, es, de, it, etc) and ISO3166 countries (US, BR, FR, ES, DE, IT, etc).

I've tried it with Navigon from spanish to english and it works (both menus and speech), but doesn't go back to spanish when I exit the app. Is that the expected behavior?

Dave,

If you go to settings -> languages and change it to german. And then open navigation (NOT from my app's shortcut), does it speak in german?

Did you create a shortcut for maps or for navigation?

Thanks!

OK, that fault was up to me! I checked Language settings and they were messed up. i switched back to english and made a new icon which works fine till now.
THX!

So ehm, isnt this supposed to restore back to default lanuage after you are done with an app ? I just tried Localized Apps and it doesnt restore it :(

Ok I noticed this did work for maps but not for Navigon, I am not sure if its Navigon fault or if its because I use tasker to increase media sound and brightness when running the app and then lower them back to default afterwards.

I did some more testing, I disabled tasker and created a new shortcut to NAVIGON, and still it did not swap back to correct language afterwards. It do work with other apps but just not navigon for some odd reason.

I do have a feature request:
Can you implement so that your app appear on the list of supported shortcuts making apps ? eg when you long press on the home screen and select shortcuts then your app will be on that list. This means that apps like Folder Organzier can create a shortcuts using your app.

Don´t work with Google Navigation.
I want my phone language to be in english but navigation in swedish.
When i try to launch navigation it just FC´s
Maps works in swedish, but when i launch it that way and want it to navigate for me tha launguage is changed back to english since Maps launches Navigation and your app registers it as i have quited maps.
Any solution?

Same issue here.
I am using MIUI on my DHD and would love to have Navigon (wish I knew thise before I bought it) in my own language.
It works perfectly going into my language but when I close Navigon everything is in MIUI language which I am not to good in (except for eating the food)

    Guys, if you are rooted, the best solution is Xposed Framework + App Settings MOD which allows you to override (not only) language settings per app. It works well, the rest of the system stays in your original language. Recommended.

    It will only work up to 4.1.2! =(
    Google changed some permissions and the app is not allowed to change the phone settings anymore...

    I created another APK to be used on rooted devices:
    1) Remove the previous APK (this is important, you shouldn't have any apk installed)
    2) Copy the attached APK to /system/app/
    3) Reboot

    Thanks!

    Sure!

    You should try MoreLocale2:

    This app sets the defaul language to anything you want!
