How To: Change the Language Settings on Your Samsung Galaxy Tab

Change the Language Settings on Your Samsung Galaxy Tab

Everyone in the world uses tablets these days, so it's no wonder that the Samsung Galaxy Tab has different languages built right in. To change your language on the Android tablet, all you need to do is navigate to the Settings menu.

Instructions for Older Tab Models

This first process will work on a Samsung Galaxy Tab (also called Galaxy Tab 7.0) running Android 2.2 Froyo to 2.3 Gingerbread, as well as any other Galaxy Tab models on the same OS versions. For newer devices and OS versions, see the second part of this article below.

Start by hitting the Menu key (far left) and select "Settings" from the popup. From the Settings menu, scroll down and choose "Locale and Text."

Instructions for Newer Tab Models

If you have a newer Samsung Galaxy Tab model, such as a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3, Tab A, Tab E, etc., running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich or higher, the process is slightly different.

Instead of hitting the Menu key, instead, touch on "Apps," and then "Settings."
