I need spell-checking in different languages such as English, German and Norwegian. I currently have only German spell-checking and it is quite irritating that it messes up with other languages' words. Is there some easy way of having spell-checking in multiple languages on the iPad?

What about keyboards? Is it possible to have many regional settings on one iPad, easily?


You can have multiple keyboards enabled: Settings -> General -> Keyboard -> International Keyboards. Add whichever keyboards you wish. Then, when you are typing text, hit the globe key on the keyboard to switch between the different keyboards.

As far as I know, you can't have multiple languages enabled at the same time for spell checking. However, you can switch between them using Settings -> International -> Language.

    Spell-checking is tied to the currently-selected keyboard so zwitching keyboard result in different language suggestions. Thank you, worked +1, aber "Einstellungen > Allgemein > Tastatur > Internationale Tastaturen" und "Einstellungen > Landeseinstellungen > Sprache" ;) – hhh Aug 23 '12 at 21:09
