How can I write German characters without a German keyboard?
Right now, I am on my phone doing DL. On my computer, paying bills. I just started German. Can I use another key to make the character that looks like a “B” but sounds like an “s”. Bitte help.
You can download certain types of software to programme your keyboard to do such things via hotkeys/command-keys such as Alt + e (example). For me, it is quite simple because my keyboard comes with software that allows me to directly programme it with whatever I like - quick and simple! Hope you find what you are looking for! Regards, ;).
I found two websites that describe how to do it:
Typing Umlauts on a PC or Mac: http://www.nthuleen.com/teach/misc/typingumlauts.html
Scands: http://sydaby.eget.net/emig/emig/scands.htm (useful if you're doing Swedish)
If anyone knows how to do it on a Linux system such as Ubuntu, I'm very interested.
