Type 1 and TrueType plain, bold, italic, and bold-italic fonts, for typing over 130 Roman-based languages.

The TransRoman keyboard arrangement permits typing all French, German, and Spanish characters without using the option key.

Comes with EuroScript® on-the-fly keyboard conversion templates (for use only in OS9) which give the most convenient possible typing of all of the accents in the most commonly used Roman languages. EuroScript allows you to type the accents and special characters of 21 European languages using only the semicolon and slash keys to produce all their special characters.

Just open your word processor, turn on the appropriate script and start typing!
