Ways to make keyboard type switching less of a hassle.

For me writing a language in its native alphabet is an important part of learning it. How have you guys dealt with having to switch between keyboard types.

Some questions might want you to translate from the language you are learning into your native language (No keyboard change necessary): 日本語 → Japanese.

But then the next question might ask you to translate from your native language to the language you are learning: English -> 英語.

I am on a mac. I can switch between keyboards. It's just tedious to do it for every other question. Any work arounds.

*Duolingo needs to work on making formatting these easier.

How are you switching? Because I'm on a mac and I can use command+space to switch inputs. It might not be the default setting (I can't remember), but it isn't that tedious of a keystroke.


Don't macs have a shortcut to switch? On Windows it is shift+control or shift+alt. Personally, I like caps lock better.

Just google "mac shortcut to switch keyboard layout" .


shift+space is another common one.
