Hi, I wonder if anyone can help me. I'm translating Russian customer surveys on the web into English. Unfortunately, a lot of the answers were written in Latin letters and the client has employed someone to put them into Cyrillic. The woman who usually does this is off today and so I've been asked to help out.

Is there an easy way of typing Cyrillic letters directly into IE. At the moment I'm clicking letter by letter from Symbols into a Word doc and copying and pasting. If anyone has a better idea, please let me know.

Elizabeth

PS. I don't have a Russian keyboard!

On-Screen Keyboard Oct 26, 2005

which comes with Windows is very helpful.

From the Start menu, select Programs --> Accessories --> Accessibility --> On-Screen Keyboard.

You must have Cyrillic fonts installed on your system to be able to switch to Cyrillic layout. They can be found on your Windows installation CD.

Hi Mikhail,

Thanks for that, I never knew you could bring up a little keyboard like that. It's certainly speeding things up.

Another tip Oct 26, 2005

Here's a tip about this widget.

Besides being a keyboard with "buttons" you can click, it provides the layout of the actual keys as they appear on the physical keyboard that has Cyrillic letters marked on each button.

So, this works best if you are trained to type without looking at the keyboard. Look at the little screen with Cyrillic characters and press the buttons on the real keyboard. Pretty soon you'll be typing away much faster than before

Of course, if you only need a few words typed in Russian, this method may not be worth the learning time.
