Change Language on Chromebook in ChromeOS

Change Language on Chromebook in ChromeOSIt is very easy to change the language that is used on a Chromebook from within ChromeOS. If the keys on your keyboard are inputting the wrong characters when you type, the keyboard input language might need to be changed. You can also change the display language setting so that the Chrome operating system displays notifications, menus, and other system text in your primary language. This document provides information on how to change what language your operating system displays in, and how to change the keyboard layout for writing in a different language.
