Korean Example -
1. Start an Application
We will use Microsoft WordPad as an example.
Start >>All Programs >>Accessories >>WordPad
2. Select a Korean Font
From the font list select a Unicode Korean font, such as “TSC Krn Myungjo S TT.”
All Unicode TwinBridge fonts are prefixed with "TSC."
3. Activate CJK Partner’s Input Prompt Line
Click the “EN” button on the Language bar and select “KO Korean” to activate the
Input Prompt Line as shown below. Note that, when working with a Unicode
application (as is the case in our example), activating the CJK Partner’s
Control Center is optional. For ANSI (non-Unicode) input, you must use an ANSI
application (such as MS Notepad), activate "Non-Unicode
Display Support" in the Control Center and choose an ANSI font.
For those who have other IMEs in addition to TwinBridge's, if the TwinBridge
Input Prompt Line fails to appear when you select “KO Korean” from the
Language bar’s pop-up menu, click the icon button next to “KO” and then
select the TwinBridge input method from the pop-up list.
Select an Input Method
Select an input method to type Korean characters. We will use the Hangul input
method as an example. If the current input method is not Hangul, click the input
method selection button and select Hangul from the pop-up list.
5. Input Korean Text
The blinking cursor must be at the location where your Korean text will be
placed. Set the cursor at a desired location in the application and begin input
based on 2-bulsik rules (default). A 3-bulsik option is also
available. You can bring up the soft keyboard (see below) at any time to
familiarize yourself with the key assignments. Aside from typing on the hard
keyboard, you can also click on the soft keyboard to enter Korean characters.
We’ll first use the soft keyboard as an example.
Input Using Soft Keyboard
• Click the
button on the Input Prompt Line to display the soft keyboard. You can click the
blank space (next to the “Q” key) in the soft keyboard and drag it anywhere on
the screen. The “Small/Medium/Large” button allows you to change the size
of the keyboard.
Click on the “r” and “l” soft keys and the Korean phonemes and
appear on the
Input Prompt Line.
Now click on “a” for
. You will notice the three phonemes are now combined to
form the character
Click on the “Enter” soft key and the character on the Input Prompt Line is sent
to your WordPad document.
• Repeat the same key sequence but instead of “Enter,” click the “Space”
soft key to convert Hangul to Hanja
There may be more than one Hanja equivalent. Click one of the numeric keys (1
through 9 and 0) to make your selection (in this instance, 1 is your only choice).
Input Prompt Line is in the “Sentence” mode by default, which allows multiple
characters to be cumulated in the prompt line and subsequently sent all together
to the application in use. There is also an option that allows you to send “One
Hangul” at a time directly to the application.
To close the soft keyboard, click the
Input Using Hard Keyboard
First, close off the soft keyboard by clicking the
button. Following exactly the same key input sequence above, you can use key
strokes to obtain the same result. (Users familiar with the Hangul input method
will find keyboard input faster than clicking on the soft keyboard.)
Congratulations! You have just completed a Korean writing session.
