How to change the keyboard language on a Mac computer, and switch between different languages with just a click
Category : entrepreneur
If you speak multiple languages, or your native language isn’t the one that came with your Mac, typing on your computer can be frustrating. But you can easily fix this snafu by changing the language of your keyboard.
Just keep in mind that not all keyboard languages are available in all countries or regions. And, depending on the language you select, you may want to buy a keyboard overlay that shows the correct characters.
To change your keyboard’s language, you’ll need to go through your Mac’s system preferences menu. In total, it should only take you a minute or so to complete.
