How to Use Microsoft Word 2007 to Type Any Language Apart From English

I Can’t Type the Characters in My language With Word

Microsoft Word 2007 can be used for typing many uncommon language characters apart from English. You can use Word 2007 to type languages like Twi, Ga, Ewe, Afrikaans, Edo, Lingala, French, etc.
Though most symbols and characters can’t be found on the keyboard directly, but there’s still a way out. Some international characters are hidden and can be found by using keyboard shortcuts. Besides, Custom Keyboard shortcut can be created to accommodate some characters that you can use to type whatever language you want. Most characters can be found when you use a Font type called Arial Unicode MS.

How to Create Your Own Keyboard Shortcuts for the Language You Want in Word 2007. (Custom Keyboard Shortcuts)

Step 1

Open Microsoft Word 2007, and click on the Insert Tab to show the groups. In the Symbols group, click on the Symbol and More symbols to display a dialog box that contains the characters to be used.
Remember to change the Font on the Symbols pop-up window to Arial Unicode MS.
(See the image below)

Step 2

Search for the language character that you want to use. For example, if I want to use this character

Ɛ, I will first click on that character to select. Then, on the dialog box, I will click on the Shortcut Key button to open another pop-up box.

Step 3

On the Customize Keyboard pop-up window, enter the keys that you want to use as your shortcut and then click on the Assign button to save your settings. For example, I will use ATL + SHIFT + E as my shortcut key for the above character. (See image below).

First make sure that the shortcut you create does not delete the any default keyboard shortcut. So before you assign the shortcut, test it to make sure that there isn’t any shortcut already assigned to it. The above method is applicable using the Standard English keyboard.

You can create as many character keyboard shortcuts as you want. Both UPPERCASE characters and lowercase characters can be used.
