    You mean your run at 90%.

     

    Thanks to Steve, it has already been established that I am at 99.99%. 

     

    Seriously - what language is that supposed to be?   It's ok, don't worry, I'm sure there's an app for that. 

     

    @ Klaus1:

     

    Seems your maths is a bit iffy as well!

     

    That slip would obviously fall into the 0.01% allowed margin of error category, wouldn't it??

    I thought you would be promoting "orangutang-latin" ...

    If you write frequently in German and other euro languagers like Italian or French you may like to use a German-Swiss or French-Swiss keyboard.  You can change from umlaut ü to accent ù just with pressing a key.

    Unfortunatly it is not easy to get a Swiss keiboard outside of Switzerland but if you have a chance I would suggest it.  I would even support such a KB as a new Central Europe Standard.  A simpler solution could be just loading the KB and show it on the screen.

    Don't know if I could re-familiarize myself with a German keyboard; I learned typing on one, but will never forget my attempt at a first job with the Americans. Part of it was a typing test; I did not know that their keyboard layout would be different, so when they said "start" I started typing furiously and only stopped when told to. Only then did I look at what I had typed - it was a bit like pig-latin since the 'y' and 'z' are reversed (and I can't remember all the other differences). In any case: I got hired anyway..... and have now been using an American layout for way too many years.

    When I was in Switzerland, I couldn't use any German. The Swiss-German is a language of it's own.

  • babowa Level 7 (29,960 points)

    Neither could I - if you're in the Swiss-Swiss area (rather than the French or Italian parts), their pronunciation is not translatable. I once drove around for 3 hours totally lost after having gotten directions from a farmer.

    They where laughing at me trying to pronounce the word 'kitchen cabinet'. It's a funny thing they do to foreigners.

    Ziel hier zu schreiben ist eine Lösung zu finden.  Viel mehr Leute lesen und screiben in English. Deswegen in English ist ein bitchen Arbeit aber du bekommst schneller deine Antwort.

    You mean Küchenschrank?? Or Kühlschrank? (Note to Tom: do note that I took the time to use the proper keys for Umlauts!). And what did you need a kitchen cabinet for in Switzerland - so your stash would be well organized in your car???

  • David M Brewer Level 6 (9,365 points)

    Something like that... it was 15 years ago.

  • jeanphicrosoft Level 1 (30 points)

    It's the same for French users .. ! The other solution is google translation, it can help !
