Italian is a Romance language spoken by about 60 million people in Italy, Switzerland, San Mrino, The Vatican City, Malta and Eritrea as well as minorities and immigrant communities in other countries. Based on Latin alphabet, Italian alphabet has only 21 letters of Latin alphabet, excluding J, K, W, X, Y, which, however, do appear in Italian but are used to write foreign loanwords. Letters with diacritics are used in Italian to represent different vowels or to differentiate words. These diacritical letters include: à,è,é,ì,í,î,ò,ó,ù,ú.
In order to type those special letters on a non-Italian keyboard, an easy way is to use keyboard shortcuts on your computer. For example, now you want to type Italian diacritical letter à, you just hold your ALT key on Windows then type 0224 on your activated Number Pad. You can find a list of codes for those Italian diacritical letters for Windows, Mac and HTML here.
If you need to type Italian on a regular basis, using keyboard shortcuts is obviously inefficient. In this case, you will need to install an Italian keyboard. A typical Italian keyboard will enable you to type Italian easily, but first you need to get familiar with its keyboard layout. On an Italian keyboard, you can type all those diacritical letters directly or with the combination of Alt Gr key and other keys with the exception of È letter, which can be obtained by typing Alt + 0220 on Windows and pressing Shift + Option + E on Mac instead. Below is a typical Italian keyboard layout.
To get familiar with the Italian keyboard layout fast, it is suggested that you buy a keyboard or a keyboard sticker of Italian, which has the Italian keyboard layout printed on it and can be placed on the surface of your existing keyboard. However, whether you want to type with a keyboard or a keyboard sticker you need to first install the Italian keyboard.
