confused....need help

HI ,

I was under the impression that computer users in China have chinese keyboards and they directly type in Chinese.
But I was recently told that, that is not the case. Apparently they use a software with which they can type in Chinese (simplified/traditioanl) etc.

Is this true?

Also is this same for Japanese,Taiwannese,Korean countries or atleast they have keyboards in their native language. any help appreciated. Thanks


Nick

Actually, they can use the same keyboard just like English speakers.

The most common method for chinese is transliteration - Chinese transliteration or pinyin is taught in elementary school. Transliteration is used as a teaching aid in native schools. There are several input methods (IME) using transliteration.

Examples of Chinese transliteration:

Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen.

Type the above into a transliteration IME, the equivalent chinese character appears.
