Adding a Chinese Keyboard to Your Phone

You may find it useful to add a Chinese keyboard feature to your phone. There might be a case where you’d ask someone at the hotel to type in a phrase in Chinese on your phone’s notepad. Perhaps it’s the location the taxi will take you to, or even “Where is the nearest toilet” and you can just show this to any Chinese person on the street for help.

These are steps for an iPhone. Hopefully Android is similar enough that you can figure it out.

  • Go to Settings > General
  • Add new keyboard
  • Choose Mandarin or Cantonese
  • When you are in an app such as notepad or email, you can tap the world globe and this allows you to choose an English or Chinese (or any other keyboard you have loaded)
  • Hengdian Studios – Yiwu Side Trip

    Hengdian studios has two nick-names “China Hollywood” for it’s comparison to “Universal Studios” and “Hellgian Studio” – interpret that on your own 🙂
