That is, if the language of the phone is English, WhatsApp will be automatically configured in English, but if our phone is configured in Spanish, then WhatsApp will be displayed in Spanish.

To change the keyboard on android phone, we need to go:

How to translate WhatsApp messages to another language
Surely more than one has happened that when wanting to chat through WhatsApp with people who speak a language other than ours , have had to pull a dictionary or translator to paste the messages received and translate them to know what they said. In the same way, what we wanted to answer had to be translated beforehand and then sent as a text message.
Well, this task of translating messages from WhatsApp into other languages has been simplified quite a bit thanks to Google Translator , an application that integrates with WhatsApp and allows us to easily translate both received and sent messages.
The first thing we have to do therefore is to download and install Google Translator from the Play Store and then open it and activate the option Enable touch to Translate . Once this is done, every time we copy in our Android mobile any text, we will see how we see a bubble with the icon of Google Translator that we can click to open the application and get the translated text.
