I need to be able to type fast in Polish on a laptop bought in the UK. I know there are shortcuts for Polish characters, but they don't seem to work in my Microsoft Windows 2007. There is also a website where you can type using Polish characters and then copy and paste, but using it would be too much bother while translating long texts. Would buying a Polish keyboard be a solution? How do professional translators cope with this problem? Please, help.

Did you try to change the system language settings and select the Polish one?

You need to add the language pack.
It will then give you extra languages that you can switch to using Windows key + spacebar.
The one I have loaded is Polish Programmers Keyboard.

When wanting to type you need to change to the poliosh keybord
To type the non UK characters you use.

alt-gr + e = ę

For some reason my previous post submitted befor I had finished writing, so this time I wrote it in notepad and then pasted it.

You say that it doesn't work in Microsoft Windows 2007. There isn't a Microsoft Windows 2007.

Did you mean Microsoft Windows 7 or Microsoft Ofiice 2007?


To type the polish chracters within windows you need install:

- Polski Language pack
- Polish keyboard (I'm using Polish (Programmers) QWERTY).

Below are two youtube tutorials showing you how to install a language pack in Windows 7 and Windows 10:

Look this video - it works perfectly.
I use different language keyboard on only one laptop (only one fisical keyboard) with Windows 7 or Windows 10 it works perfectly.

I give you an example for polish keyboard on MAC OS - it works in similar way.
To stay with the English (physical) keyboard and write in Polish, just select the Programmer's Polish Keyboard (or Polish-Pro). Then you don't have to change anything, you only need to use abbreviations for typical Polish letters. Very easy.

Thank you

Zdecydowałem się uczyć polskiego przy pomocy e-polish.eu nie bez wątpliwości. Teraz jednak – po dwóch miesiącach nauki – przyznaję była to dobra decyzja. Mając ograniczony czas na naukę program ten daje mi pełną elastyczność. Polecam wszystkim zainteresowanym językiem polskim!
