GREETINGS MIUIANDROID!
After successfully translating 1151 lines of string on the Latest and Official MIUI Sogou Millet Edition Keyboard straight from Xiaomi's Market, it was frustrating to see that although they support the English language they hadn't provided any English dictionaries, nor was it easy to implement via SMALI as their whole keyboard was orientated for Chinese Users...​
So instead I took the time to bring to the users of my ROM a MIUI Themed AOSP Keyboard that I have been working hard on. I'd also like to offer this to the community (Compatible with HDPI Devices Only) providing that developers intending on using it in any ROM made available to the public ask permissions for it's use and give credits where due beforehand.​
Here are some screenshots at hand:
I spent a lot of time getting this just right whilst remaining visually pleasing to the user and still retaining the Sogou MIUI keyboard looks.​

MD5: B676749E84EF138CF41CF710500CF654
NOTE: BEFORE FLASHING PLEASE CLEAR EXISTING ANDROID KEYBOARD (AOSP) DATA!!!
Also this theme was designed and intended for HDPI resolutions only...
[MENU] > Settings > Full Settings > Apps > Locate 'Android keyboard (AOSP)' > Clear data
Once the above has been performed you can then proceed to flashing in recovery straight afterwards​
...​
I hope you enjoy my work, and it's finally nice to be using a keyboard which fits in with the MIUI theme.​
Best Regards,
s89

Nice work! I did a similar thing with the Xperia S keyboard cause it has trace, but this looks awesome :).

I know you did Lenny :p I saw your posts regarding the matter over at another forum for which I cannot remember now :/. I actually stripped out all the Chinese layouts from XML and SMALI for the official MIUI Sogou Millet Keyboard but it was useless without alternative supported languages and dictionaries; that and it still didn't include the cool key preview pop-up that I was anticipating from the MIUI previews. So I thought what the heck... I'll theme it myself. Thank-you however for your kind feedback, it is very much appreciated.

Best Regards,

You own a device which unfortunately doesn't support the HDPI res therefore my theme will not apply as should, could you provide your device name/model for reference. I'll likely support other resolutions in the future, but I will need some time to recreate a majority of my themed resources.

This will replace LatinIME.apk since it's based upon the Android Keyboard, if you wish to revert then reflash your rom again in recovery without wiping data...
