You may choose one or more of the Language Packs below.  Click-N-Type allows multiple Language Configurations under the single Click-N-Type installation.  For people running multiple keyboard languages, this means all you have to do is change the Click-N-Type "File | Configuration..." menu choice, and change the Windows keyboard language to match for both Click-N-Type and the Target.

For those adventurous types who like to mix and match features, a LC-Configure utility is available.  With this utility, you are able to mix language features.  For example, you can make your own Language Configuration that uses a French keyboard, German menus and messages, Spanish Word Prediction, etc...

British keyboard -
Even though the British and Americans speak the same language, there are some fundamental differences in the "English (British)" keyboard. The most noticeable is the existence of the "¬" and "£" characters that don't exist on the American keyboard.  Less noticeable are the differences in character pairs.  For example, the "@" is a Shift+<'> rather than a Shift+<2>.  Other differences are things like the need for Ctrl+Alt+<`> to generate the "¦" Pipe character.  To the left you can view a Typical British Click-N-Type keyboard, and download the British Language Pack to create it.  This package also includes a "British (Bold)" configuration for the visually impaired.
