Stuck in an internet café or with a hotel computer station with an English keyboard when you want French or Spanish when you need English?
It is important to get familiar with how to manipulate keyboard settings in different settings – yes you may be an inveterate Mac user, but when stuck in a Windows environment, can you survive and even thrive? One option to fall back upon is offered by the folks at Gate2home.
This site is splendid for its ease of use and its extraordinary gamut of languages. So, when your friend connects with you in Amharic, Turkish or Georgian, answering back in the same language is now an easy click away (you still need to know how to read and write in the other language, failing that, it’s back to Google Translate to help you blunder through in reply).
