I was asked to translate my iOS app to Lithuanian language. I did it, but now I would like to see the result, and...

cannot change language of my iPhone to Lithuanian. Why?

enter image description here

There is no such lanaguage on my list, and I am confused.

My understanding is that Lithuanian is not one of the 31 languages supported natively by iOS. However, since iOS 8, iOS apps can be in any language, even if Apple hasn't localised it yet.

In iOS 8 and above you can do this as follows:

  • Go to Settings
  • Tap on General
  • Tap on Language & Region
  • Near the top, tap on the blue Other languages... option
  • In the search field just enter 'lit' to filter the list down to Lithuanian
  • Select the language

You may also find these links useful with what you're doing:


Settings > general > language and region. Use Edit button to move Lithuanian to the top of the Preferred Languages list. If not there, use the add language button at bottom.

  • Sorry, forgot, no iOS Lithuanian . You have to put this at top of the preferred language list. May 1, 2017 at 23:21
