IME (Input Method Editor)
Version: 1.2-50300
by: Kremonte, Dridzt
IME : Warcraft Input Method Editor

IME is, well, an IME. If you've ever used one, you'd know the level of simplicity if brings to type in other languages or keymaps.

IME is an attempt to simplify all that, and allow using characters outside the normal range to type in WoW. Normally, using the two locales I've found (Greek and Cyrillic), typing them via a Windows IME has failed, bringing up only question marks. Using an addon, however, they can be inputted easily.

With IME loaded, you'll have a box. A small box. A small blue box. The small blue box will probably say "N/A" - this is the default IME. It changes nothing. Click it, however, and you change to a new keymap. Type in your chatframe and the characters will be changed automatically.

Pressing Ctrl + Tab while typing will also cycle through available input methods.

Included are keymaps for adapted Greek and Cyrillic, both phonetic, and a leet layout.

I could give it a try.. would you just need to know what key goes with what character?

Also, would the text show up properly for those who don't have this addon installed?

**EDIT**
I went to one of the pages you had linked in a previous comment, and there are 3 different types (Hangul Compatibility Jamo and 2 extended)...

http://www.utf8-chartable.de/unicode-utf8-table.pl?start=12592&utf8=dec

... is the link to the first. I thought I could try making another .lua file using one of the existing ones as a template but it might be more complicated than that because of how Korean characters are put together... Oy... Anyhow, please let me know if I can help in some way.

Thanks!

The way the addon is coded, it's unfortunately not possible to use two letter combinations. However, changing the keymap manually is possible -
open keymaps\cyrillic_phonetic.lua in a text editor

within the table (where and of the ["X"] = "y",), add

["char"] = "newchar",

For simple accents (like u with umlaut ), you can use http://black-fraternity.de/lua/utf8converter.php to get the two character code, as WoW doesn't like Unicode characters. For Cyrillic (and greek for that matter) characters, it's more of a pain in the ass.

To get it, you can go to
http://www.utf8-chartable.de/
select U+400 ... U+4FF: Cyrillic,
and under "display format for UTF-8 encoding", choose decimal. Now, CTRL+F for your character e.g. "ю", and copy down the two-number code (lowercase ju is 209 142),
Preface each number with a backslash and you're good to go.

For example, if you want to change to ю, you would add a line as such:
["\195\188"] = "\209\142",

Et voil! It's that.... simple?

Simply amazing!

Small request:
Can you make it so right-click on the button returns to the default input? (N/A)
