We are often asked how do you type Swedish letters when one doesn't have a Swedish keyboard? Never fear we have a couple of solutions.
First there is www.swedish.typeit.org
It allows you to write your text in swedish and then copy to your wordprocessing program.
If you want to never leave your wordprocessing program and continue to write without all of the cutting and pasting then try it this way.
There are a few different ways.
- Put on the Number Lock. Hold down the alt key whil you type these number sequences on the numeric keypad. The number keys on the tiop of your keyboard will not work.
alt 134 = å
alt 143 = Å
alt 132 = ä
alt 142 = Ä
alt 148 = ö
alt 153 = Ö
alt 129 = ü
alt 154 = Ü
- For ä and ö, there´s also another way:
First type the key with two horizontal dots (like you use for writing ü), then type either a or o. It will work for both ä,Ä,ö and Ö.
- Or use Word:
You can also check the Help function in Word:"How to type foreign characters". It might only work in Word, but in Word you can put them on your clip board and paste when you like to use them in any other program or browser.
- Or change national settings in Win Xp Control panel:
Change the characters in Windows XP in the Control panel; Control panel, National settings, Languages and the button Information. You can set the language you want the keyboard to use.
