Type in a Foreign Language

My daughter love Foreign Languages. She would love this site:

TypeIt is a tool that allows users to type more easily in foreign languages. 

Users select a language (including IPA phonetic symbols for English), 
then type whatever they need to–an email, a blog post, a forum comment, et cetera,
copy and paste the text. 


  • Full keyboard support for IE 6/7/8, Firefox, Safari and Chrome
  • Switch between character sets while typing
  • Boldface, italics, underline and superscript in all editors
  • Choose font face and size

The benefit of doing this is being able to use shortcuts for writing special characters like ö, á, ¿, «, etc. This would not be great for typing long reports because users should be using keyboard shortcuts for editing in those situations, but for short web postings or emails, this could be a useful tool.

Sorry, No Latin!
