No mechanism for entering accents in the English translation. e.g. fiancee ?

Hold alt/option + ` / e / i for accents. Or click the characters on the screen.

The problem is that it asks for the english translation. It requires me to enter "fiancée" but there are no screen buttons for entering accents when writing in english.

If you're on a mac, just hold down the button and the diacritical options will pop up.

My English dictionary says 'fiancée' means wife-to-be, leaving the old-fashioned 'betrothed' as the gender neutral word for spouse-to-be. The masculine possessive would seem to limit the subject in the answer to 'betrothed' here but it's a heartbreaker.
