Was ist der Unterschied zwischen klein und schmal und warum kleine kann nicht übersetzt werden schmal?

Schmal is more like thin. There are a few scenarios where they can be interchanged, but more often you cant.

How can you type German words without a german keyboard

The Eszett or the weird B can be replaced with two S. So "bi"g would be "Gross" if you are using an American keyboard.

Hold down your "s" button, the "ß" will show up as an option.

ß is the same as double S.

That's not true.

in Massen "in massive quantities" means pretty much the opposite of in Maßen "in limited quantities".

Schmal is the same of klein? Constance

No. schmal is narrow, klein is small.
