The German umlauts and the eszett

If you want to enter a German umlaut or the eszett but cannot find them on your keyboard you can use quotation marks as a substitute.

Most systems also support the following standard method of foreign character entry:

Required input ä ö ü Ä Ö Ü ß
Equivalent input a" o" u" A" O" U" s"
Alt + (numeric pad) 132 148 129 142 153 154 225


You can even enter a number which consists of up to 15 digits.

Given such a number as search expression, QuickDic will convert the numerals into words.
