    I think it would be a good idea if Apple includes multi language dictation on the watch. My parents primarily speak Spanish, so we usually text in Spanish. Anyone else in this situation?

    The user guide states this is possible.

    the watch will choose what language to use based on the current keyboard selected in the messages conversation with the person you are sending a message too.

    But the watch has no keyboard. How do you switch keyboards without taking out your phone?

    This is also an issue for me. I often sms and write in Swedish but almost always dictate in English. I have tried to keep my keyboard on English but that messes me up. The only other way I've found is leaving the keyboard on English but selecting my foreign characters by pressing and holding a to get ä, o to get ö and a again to get å. That way, my keyboard is always on English and therefor ready for dictation in English.

    Very frustrating though ... grrrr!
