    Typing Russian Fonts - How do I do it?

    First post by the way.

    Do I need a special keyboard to type in Russian on my computer? I have an electronic translator where the keyboard is in both Russian and English. Do I need a keybard similiar to my electronic translator or is there something else I can do to type in Russian. Thanks,

    Mark

    Start - control panel- regionol and language settings - languages - detials -Add - Russian - OK- Done.

    To swtich, in general it is "HOLD right Alt and press right Shift". but it shoudl tell u if urs is difrent.
    Вот это да, я так люблю себя. И сегодня я люблю себя, ещё больше чем вчера, а завтра я буду любить себя to ещё больше чем сегодня. Тем что происходит,я вполне доволен!

    HAHAHAHAHHAH! Indeed. Actually, the Russian keyboard is layed out much more sensibly than its English counterpart, so it should not take you long to learn to touch-type with it. You could always just write in pencil on the keyboard or make your own. I think MR sells Cyrillic keyboard stickers.

    It was even better before Microsoft messed it up... Typing commas with little fingers -- arrrrgh! On Russian typewrites, keys for comma and period used to be in the upper (numerical) row, and you pressed them with indices. The same Russian layout was used by Macs.

    Enter Microsoft, and they just need to change everything, like they always do.

    Hi. I tried this and it tells me to put in a certain CD-rom. When I did, it tells me it can't find whatever it needs to accomplish this. Please advise. Thanks.

    seeking graphic image of Russian keyboard

    I would rather not mark up my keyboard. I have my computer set up to switch between the En/English and Ru/Russian keyboards. But I'm wondering ... would someone please point me to a graphic image of the Russian keyboard? I have in mind something that I will be able to download, print, and tape to the edge of my computer monitor. I think a graphic like that would be very helpful to me. Thanks. (This is my first post in these forums.)

    I found the following site to be very comprehensive, just follow the link to what you want to do, and follow the steps. And as for learning the keyboard, I would like to eventually get the stickers and set it up properly, but you can also configure it so that the keyboard is more intuitive. For example: (En/Ru) s/с, d/д, l/л, n/н . Its not perfect, and in spots could be misleading (w/ш) but all the same I like it. Anyways the site shows pics of the layout of both keyboards and how to set up either.

    typing in Russian

    My computer says it is typing in Russian but it comes out weird. I'll type and show you. If it comes out messed up can you help me? If it is right then please disregard this message.

    вы понимаете меня (btw, where is the question mark?)

    PS. Sorry if my first post makes me look like a complete idiot.

    If it doesn't show up right, you can right click and go to encoding>>Cyrillic.
    But it might just be that the email program isn't compatible... when I try to download Russian music off winmx, it looks like a mess...

    For those who cant or wont stick stuff on their keyboards and need a graphical representation of the layout:

    Start--> All Programs--> Accessories--> Accessibility--> On Screen Keyboard.

    It switches to Cyrillic whenever you switch Windows.

    It worked!

    Thanks Saavedra! I hit the right click button, then "encoding", then "Cyrillic (windows)" and now I can type in Russian in my emails. I got the Russian keyboard to come up on my screen to and that is pretty cool. I will get all this figured out eventually. Thanks again!

    Спасибо большое. Пока!

    I made this not that long ago for the same reason. Print it, cut around the keyboard layout and tape it to your monitor or whatever.

    well if you dont want to go through all the hassle of downloading and installing all these programs or add-ons onto your computer. I found this on a link on MR (Master Russian) http://www.ruslang.com/?rus_keyb_standard.html the only thing you have to do is type, and look at the keyboard at the bottom of the text area, and it automaticly puts it into russian characters. And if you want to switch from russian to american, all you have to do is turn off the translater, and it does that for you too. well good luck, and have fun with it, До свидания! and Good Luck
