How to type Turkish letters on a Swedish keyboard?

Hi! I'm getting real tired of using the mouse for typing the Turkish letters. Can someone help me with any smart tips how I easier can type them? Btw I'm using a Swedish keyboard so I already have Öö and Üü I can easily make myself :)

I would suggest taking the time to download the Turkish QWERTY keyboard. :) If you use windows, it can be done at the Control Panel under the "Clock, Language, and Region" menu.

I use an English keyboard and have had no issue using this.

Tjena.

I'm using a Turkish keyboard and I can type the Danish å and ø. What I did was install Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator and add those special letters to my existing Turkish Keyboard. Perhaps you can do the same thing with the Swedish Keyboard? Something like, assigning Ç to AltGr + C or something like that.

So that's an option.

That's what I did. AltGr+S C G I = şŞ çÇ ğğ ıİ. (I already have öÖ üÜ on my German keyboard.)

Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator FTW.

If you use Google Chrome (and don't plan to use the characters outside of your web browser), you can install the Google Input Tools extension. I have Turkish, Russian and Arabic keyboards here, two clicks away. hehe

You don't actually need to type in the Turkish letters in order to answer the questions correctly. Duolingo is smart enough that recognise that "yarin goruselim mi" is the same as "yarın görüşelim mi". It will say that you have some spelling mistakes, but it will consider it to be a correct answer.

When I'm confident I know how to spell the Turkish word correctly, I always answer the questions this way. It's so much quicker.
