I just unboxed a nexus 7 and coming from an iPhone I am missing the possibility to set multiple input languages for the on screen keyboard.

I need to type text in English and in Italian but I can't find a way to select the Italian keyboard. I am using a device bought in the US, but I don't think that would matter too much.

Assuming that it hasn't changed since ICS, you can go to:

Settings → Language & Input → Android Keyboard settings

You can enable another languages over there and then you can quickly switch by long pressing on the space bar or by tapping on "Select input method" entry on the Notification Bar.

Thanks it was still there. I looked at that menu but it was missing the latest step –  mariosangiorgio Sep 21 '12 at 3:37

You have to uncheck the box that says "use system language". I had the same problem, I had not seen that!
