Does anyone know, Do Kindles have Korean language? Can I switch from English to Korean and back again like on a computer keyboard?

No you can't do that. From the Kindle product page: "Kindle supports the display of non-Latin characters, so you can read books and documents in the translation that's right for you. Kindle displays Cyrillic (such as Russian), Japanese, Chinese (Traditional and Simplified), and Korean characters, in addition to Latin and Greek scripts."

as far as I know, only one kindle has a keyboard and an interface in any language other than english and that's the basic kindle and it just has six languages (english, german, italian, french, brazilian portuguese and spanish)

perhaps when the international version of the touch and fire come out they'll support other languages as well

Kindle Fire 2nd Generation - 10.2.1 - at least in this update you are not able to write in Korean. What is really a shame, it would be such a great device to study another language. But now when I know that it doesn't support something that basic - might return it...

10.2.1: I thought you can at least read Korean from the web browser. But, NO.. you can't even read Korean from their web Browser. No fonts installed for Korean. I may have to send it back too..

The Paperwhite will display Korean, but you can't enter Korean using the keyboard.

if you have a Kindle Fire 2nd generation or HD, with the latest update, there's now the option of downloading a keyboard language and I believe Korean is one of the choices

John, do you know if I buy an english version book from kindle, will it translate to Korean? If not, do you know if they have a good selection for korean novels?

CBRetriever says:
you can't translate a whole book and I see a whole 8 books in Korean, but my country is set to France, and someone in Korea would likely see far more than I do. John's in South Africa, so he'll see an even different number/selection of book

ok, thanks for the info. My mom likes to read korean novels and I'm trying to figure out what is the best thing for her.

CBRetriever says:
you might check out online sources for Korean ebooks and see what formats they use/provide books in and let that help you make a decisions. Here's a couple of places to get started, but be sure to check and see whether or not those books can be downloaded outside Korea

that's just for the Keyboard, not for the Device language and only on the 2012 and 2013 Kindle Fires
