Dear Iphone community, I came here today because I need YOU!
YES you heard me right, I NEED YOU!!!


Back to the topic, I got an Iphone 4s, I'm in the uk and I use O2 operator.
I was wondering if by there was anyway to make siri bilingual.
What I mean by that is if I talk to Siri in french I would like him to understand me and reply to me in french. I do not want to have to change the setting everytime. Same with english.
So is there a Siri 2.0 who understand several language as long as you set them up. Or is there an equivalent to siri which is better?


Thanks for your help.


Yours Faithfully,



MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.1), software

    I don't know how to do this but I agree with you- Siri should have a bilingual option with French and Spanish.

    I am Japanese/English bi-lingual and was playing around with Siri... In the Japanese version you can actually give her English words to use, but you need to speak with American English and she get's upset if you don't...

    +1 Siri should have a setting to speak multiple languages that you've chosen. For example, Canada is a bilingual country.. French is very common as well as English. Siri should be able to recognize and pronunciate words based upon their origin.

    Siri is still in beta, so it's not even technically in a '1.0' state, therefore, there can't be a better version yet. If you would like to suggest this feature to be added to Siri's functionality, please submit feedback here for consideration
