Typing in Foreign Languages

typeit-logo.png If you have the need to type anything in a foreign language which has accents and other strange-looking
characters, and you only have a US keyboard,this website will make your life a whole lot easier!

Now, through the miracles of Unicode and JavaScript,
you can just navigate to this site, type whatever you need to type in a text box,
and then paste it wherever you need it — into your word processor, e-mail
message, etc.
You can type foreign characters by clicking buttons or by pressing intuitive
keyboard shortcuts (Ctrl+Letter). Now typing in French, German, Russian and many more languages is simple.
