I regularly use Polish and German fonts using Word 97.
Here are the steps for setting up your keyboard layout for another language:
1. Double click on My Computer
2. Double click on Control Panel
3. Double click on Keyboard
4. Select Language Tab
5. Then add the desired language or languages.
6. Enable indicator on task bar and you are then able to quickly change keyboard layout for another language.
Finally to get aquainted with the new language keyboard layout, this is what I did:
1.In word I typed all the characters from my keyboard in the default English layout across the page hitting the return 3 to 4 times at the end of each line.
2.Next I changed the keyboard layout language to say German and type out all the characters in the same order below each line of the respective English ones.
3.Print this out for reference or until you know it off by heart.
Add you need to repeat the above using the shift key for the?"%*& etc. as these also change. (not all but some.
You may also wish to repeat again using Caps Lock for capitals as well.
