Hi, i am very new here (just a few minutes), hope you dont flame me for making a thread so fresh after registering.
In my defense i am shy and dont create a thread in several years. And that life is short too :)
Is for a good cause, to help my whole country suffering from Qwertism...
I think i am the first Portuguese registered here, but surely must be other people that type in Portuguese that can benefit from this thread.
The people that speak Portuguese are the 5th language in the world:

1. Mandarin Chinese - 882,475,389
2. Spanish - 325,529,636
3. English - 311,992,760
4. Hindi - 181,780,905
5. Portuguese - 178,557,840 <<<<<<<<<<<<
6. Bengali - 172,756,322
7. Russian - 146,327,183
8. Japanese - 128,278,015
9. German - 96,047,358
10. Wu Chinese - 77,998,190
We use qwerty keyboards here at Portugal. We also need to write: ç á à é í ó ú ê ã â õ
That is provided by a key ç
by use ^ (ê...
by use of ~ (ã...
and by use of ´ (ú...
and ` (à
Our frequency of letters is also different from the english.
Here i provide a pic using the colemak layout and the key % distribution at Portuguese.
As you can see by that pic i already robbed a pic from a member of this forum (can you forgive me DreymaR :) )
And also stole the layout from the administrator. I am badddd :)
What is your opinion? Please help a poor Portuguese, very ignorant, and not-keyboard-wise?
Have mercy, save me from a life of Qwerty-doom :)
