I use onenote on OSX and it uses the input language as proofing language so I have two input langauges (English and Danish) however I use both langauges with a Danish hardware keyboard. Any possibility to tweak the English input language to use Danish HW keyboard?

(I know this is possible on Windows but I cannot find the option to do it on OSX)

  • Hi, Welcome, Did you try switching the Input key board in System preferences Key Board to Danish? – Ruskes Apr 3 '14 at 4:29
  • Have you already seen the discussion at answers.microsoft.com/en-us/office/forum/… – Tom Gewecke Apr 3 '14 at 4:43
  • @Buscar웃 - that's exactly my question. I want to keep the danish keyboard layout - but change the input language. So have two input languages both of them with Danish keyboard layout. – Morgan Apr 3 '14 at 4:57
  • @TomGewecke Yes, I read that. Others are experincing the same problem. I can live with changing input language but it's really annoying to have the keyboard layout change too - that's why I am asking if anyone know it's possible to change input language and input keyboard separately. – Morgan Apr 3 '14 at 4:58
  • The difference btw English and Danish keyboard are 3 keys as far I see, so leaving it in E+E is workable solution. – Ruskes Apr 3 '14 at 5:18

Use Ukelele to make a custom keyboard layout which has US as the name but uses the key mapping for Danish. Hopefully OneNote will switch to English proofing when you use this.

Do you want to use different keyboard layouts for different languages?

I'm using english as my "input" language, but using the german keyboard layout.

For your system language, go to

System Preferences > Language & Region

Here are your "input languages".

When you go to

System Preferences > Keyboard

Just use your preferred one. And you can easily switch your keyboard layout through the menu bar:

  • The original poster wants to use the same keyboard layout for different languages, but needs to have the same layout with two different names to get the right spellcheck activated. Your answer will not help with that. – Tom Gewecke Apr 4 '14 at 20:49
