How To Enable Multiple Language Keyboard Layouts In Gnome3
If you need to be able to write in different languages you can quickly switch between multiple keyboard layouts in Gnome 3.
Open System settings
Select Region and Language
Click on Layouts
Select Allow different layouts for individual windows
Click on the + (add) icon
Select the language by highlighting it and clicking the Add button.
You should notice a en in the top right corner of your screen.
Now just open the application that you would like to write in. In this example I am using Libreoffice
Click on en option located in the upper right corner and select the language you would like to write in.
You should be ready to start typing away.
If you have a US-en keyboard like I do you can purchase little stickers to go on your keyboard so you know what characters go with what key. They usually cost any where from $0.88 to $10.
