    Question, question!

    Well, here's what I know:

    1) I've never been to Japan, China nor Korea.

    2) I've heard that Japanese, Chinese and Korean have A LOT of characters

    so, my question is: how is a Japanese, a Chinese or a Korean keyboard? Attach a picture if you have one.

    I would also like to know about Arabic, Russian or any other non-roman-character-set language keyboard.

    Japanese write down the page as well, i wonder how they work that on PC. I suppose they use English mostly. I did see a picture of a Japanese keyboard and it had English letters and ideographs on the same keys, so i guess they use the shift or ctrl key to choose?
    All spelling mistakes, syntatical errors and stupid comments are intentional.

    Chinese keyboard is like Normal ones...

    It is very hard to learn Chinese input. First you have to select the Chinese input option from the keyboard from the control panel (that is, if you don't have Chinese windows, in which I don't). Then you have to memorize all the pinyin for that character. Then you have to select a character from the list of 1-10 characters. The Chinese keyboard is designed to do that kind of stuff, so they have little pinyin symbols on the keyboard. Also other symbols as well... which I forget what it is since I ruined mine 5 years ago.

    pinyin = syllable

    1-10 characters to select from (homyonoms) the computer screen.

    Sorry, I don't have a picture of that keyboard. I am just too lazy.

    japanase is easier, even i have a plugin for some programs that lenme use japanase characters, i write down in romaji (in occidental letters) then it changes it to hiragana syllabes, when i finish with the word, i press space then i can choose to change it to katakana syllabes (katakana is used for foreign words) or kanjis that are those signs that come from chinese, the ideographs
