If the smart replies aren’t in the language you want to use, press the display, then tap Choose Language. The available languages are those you enabled on your iPhone in Settings > General > Keyboard > Keyboards.
Dictate text: Tap , say what you want to say, then tap Done. You can speak punctuation, too—for example, “did it arrive question mark.”
