How to Write Shabi in Chinese

Activate the Chinese keyboard in Windows

Would you like to type in Chinese text without having to buy a Chinese keyboard? At first glance, that doesn't seem to be possible.

However, there is still the option of writing in Chinese - and possibly even using the current German keyboard. In addition to the appropriate key stickers, the correct setting on the computer is particularly important, and that's exactly what we want to show you in the following.

By the way: If you frequently need a Chinese keyboard, we recommend appropriate stickers for the keyboard.

You can get this from Amazon, for example.

Activate the Chinese keyboard - that's how it works

We'll show you how to use a Chinese keyboard using Windows 10 - but we always briefly describe older versions of the operating system in italics.

Step 1: Open Settings

This is particularly easy with Windows 10: Press the Windows key and then click on "Settings", and the corresponding menu opens.

In some older Windows versions, the control panel is the right starting point for the language settings - and this second way is also available in Windows 10. All you need to do is right-click on the Windows icon in the system tray and then click on Control panel.

Step 2: Time and language choose

In Windows 10, this category can be found at the bottom left and can be selected with a simple click.

A corresponding point can also be found in the control panel, which may not be called the same, but always similar. With some Windows versions you can already click here add language click and skip a few steps, for others you have to go to the sub-item first Time and language Select (or similar).

Step 3: Click on the region and language

In Windows 10, the category Region and Language be clicked so that the appropriate setting options appear.

You should now see the point in the control panel add language can already be seen - otherwise also look for a point here that Region and Language or similar means.

Step 4: add languages

A simple click on add language now opens the list with the possible language packages.

This point can also be found in the system control and an alphabetical list also opens here.

Step 5: select Chinese

Here you still have to make a decision whether you want to write traditional or simplified Chinese - if you click on one of the points, you can also select the region to which the language package should be adapted.

The same applies to other Windows versions: what you want Chinese language pack and then select it with a double click.

Step 6: Activate the Chinese keyboard

There are several ways to do this - the most direct way is in the menu Region and Languagethat appears automatically after selection Chinese and then on As standard to click.

The input language can also be changed quickly and easily using the + key combination - the corresponding country code next to the time will then change in the taskbar.

Buy a real Chinese keyboard

As mentioned above, if you type in Chinese a lot, stickers are a good investment. But there are also “real” Chinese keyboards such as the HP Chinese USB keyboard; all buttons are then preconfigured accordingly.

If you just want to quickly generate Chinese text, you can also do it online - for example, here is a page that allows direct access to the Chinese characters.
