Is it somehow possible to tell Sdlx editor and Tageditor to type the Slovak version of quotation marks?
i mean although I have no problem typing Slovak characters, I always get the English version of quotation marks (i.e "quote" instead of „quote“).

keyboard shortcuts May 26, 2010

Czech quotation marks are the same as Slovak. The Alt+[number] solution is OK unless you have a laptop without a numpad; and if you have to type quotation marks often, a keyboard shortcut is handy even on a dekstop. I myself use AutoHotKeys to assign the Czech quotation marks to shortcuts Ctrl+F5 and Ctrl+F6 (but I have to use them heavily because I also translate books of fiction, where they come very often).

Every keyboard has a numpad. I can use numpad numers by holding Fn +
J for 1
K for 2
L for 3
U for 4
I for 5
O for 6
M for 0
Numpad number, which usually has different colour, is written on the key.
Hold Fn and press F11 in order to turn the numad on/off.

If you use Autohotkey, you can easily make it to type out opening quote when you press " for the first time and closing quote when you press it the second time.

+'::
if rightbr = 1
{
rightbr = 0
Send {ASC 0148}
}
Else
{
rightbr = 1
Send {ASC 0132}
}
return

The Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator May 26, 2010

I used this tool (available here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/goglobal/bb964665.aspx) to create a modified Polish layout with the opening and closing quotes assigned to ALT ; and ALT ' respectively, as well as the n-dash to ALT - and m-dash to ALT SHIFT -. Works very well and I can easily insert those characters anywhere.
