Thanks for the feedback on this. I wanted to clarify on a couple of these
- On an android phone, if i have two languages setup for my project, i
need to click two times on the “options” button on the phone, to get the
"Change Language" option to be selectable. The first time it shows up as a
displayed - but disabled option. however, clicking on the options button
again enables the “Change Language” option for the form.
This definitely sounds like a bug! Sorry about that. Can you email a bug
report including your phone version using this template?
get that cleared up ASAP.
- Additionally, i have noticed the languages do not get downloaded by
default, rather one has to select “deploy” in the language definition page
for the additional languages to be selected to be deployed.
This is an unfortunate consequence of CommCare HQ assuming that you’ll be
defining multiple languages “globally” (IE: for the CommCare menus as well
as the forms themselves). We’re also working on getting this fixed.
- The Android version 2.3.6 does not support some of the indian languages
like “kannada”. Projects using kannada on android, should not deploy their
apps on this version of android.
Android phones before Version 4.0 do have very limited language sets,
although phone font support varies. I have seen 2.3 phones which supported
Kannada script, but they are not common. I agree that it’s always dangerous
to assume that Android phones will support different fonts. Checking first
is very valuable!
- While creating a reminder, request for project specific languages to be
provided as a drop down in the message language field.
I’ll pass this along to the dev team. Thanks for the feedback!

Unfortunately that default language setting on a mobile worker doesn’t yet
affect the phone language (it is used for the website and reports).
Unfortunately you need to set the default language within the
application, not on the mobile worker. To do this, go to your app on
CommCareHQ and choose the Languages setting. Then drag and drop so that
nya is at the top of the list (making it the default). Then when you build
the application, nya will be the default.
You can also manually change the language for the application on the
- On Java Phones, login as your admin user and then go to Settings (the
left button) and change the language ther.
- On Android Phones, login and choose the menu button and go to
Settings. Then choose Change Locale. Unfortunately, you may also need to
manually change the language on each form as well (open the form, press the
menu button and choose Change Language).
If you’d like you can also go to our Uservoice forum (
dimagi.uservoice.com) and submit the suggestion for making the mobile
worker language setting also change the language on the phone.

I have build our forms in English and filled out the second language
(nya) in Chichewa for many, but not all questions. For my mobile users, I
have selected their default language as chichewa, and yet all the questions
appear in english on the phones…?
Is there some other setting that needs to be selected?
