    How to Turn On or Off Multilingual Text Prediction in Windows 10

    Starting with Windows 10 build 17093, you do not have to manually switch the language anymore with the Touch Keyboard if you type in more than one Latin script languages. Simply continue typing in multiple languages and Windows 10 will assist you by showing predictions from multiple languages to make you more productive.

    The additional step of manually switching between languages creates a barrier for users that are multi-lingual. Microsoft is hoping that this multilingual text prediction feature can reduce that barrier and allow you to easily type in multiple languages.

    With build 17093, Windows supports up to 3 Latin script languages for multi-lingual text predictions. It picks the top 3 installed languages from Language Settings while suggesting predictions.

    If you’re using the touch keyboard in any of the following languages, you’ll now see words suggested as you type: Assamese, Bashkir, Belarusian, Greenlandic, Hawaiian, Icelandic, Igbo, Irish, Kyrgyz, Luxembourgish, Maltese, Maori, Mongolian, Nepali, Pashto, Sakha, Tajik, Tatar, Tswana, Turkmen, Urdu, Uyghur, Welsh, Xhosa, Yoruba, Zulu.

    This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off multilingual text prediction for your account in Windows 10.

    Thanks Shawn. Another clear, straightforward tut.

    From the picture in option one it's clear, that Microsoft didn't decide yet, if they want this to work or not. There is statement under Hardware keyboard, that suggestions only work for En-us language, but in the selection at the bottom, it says multi language.

    The later is correct. Typing is offering me English and Slovene words, as I type
