Ionic app keyboard in english by default?


i’m testing my ionic app on my french iPhone. When I’m showing the keyboard, the text in Accessory Bar is in english (“Done”) and not in french. Is it normal ?

Same problem with the copy / paste actions

Thanx for your help !

I think it is in english by default.
If you want to translate then you can use:

Hi !

the keyboard is not a system element ?

I think it is cordova plugins keyboard:

  $ionicPlatform.ready(function() {
// Hide the accessory bar by default (remove this to show the accessory bar above the keyboard
// for form inputs)
if (window.cordova && window.cordova.plugins && window.cordova.plugins.Keyboard) {
if (window.StatusBar) {
  // org.apache.cordova.statusbar required


But I am not sure. @Finality

You can see for native keyboard:

The Ionic keyboard plugin gives you native.showkeyboard and native.hidekeyboard events which can be used this way: After adding it to you project:

cordova plugin add

use it this way:

window.addEventListener(‘native.hidekeyboard’, keyboardHideHandler);
window.addEventListener(‘native.showkeyboard’, keyboardShowHandler);
function keyboardHideHandler(e){
alert(‘Goodnight, sweet prince’);
function keyboardShowHandler(e){
alert('Keyboard height is: ’ + e.keyboardHeight);

Can try but I am not sure.

I don’t understannd the link betwee n the ionic plugin keyboard and my problem ^^ If I understandn ionic plugin keyboard allows to interact with the keyboard with JS. My problem is the translation of “Done” action in Accessory Bar of tke keyboard :slight_smile:
