input method editor (IME)

Input MethodEditor (IME) is an input program with which Asian characters can be entered on a Latin keyboard

. Corresponding input methods are available for Japanese, Chinese and Korean. Since the range of Asian characters is much larger than the range of letters on classical keyboards, input methods convert a combination of letters into an Asian character.

Such input methods are available from Microsoft and also from Google.

They work with an editor with different transcription methods. Latin letters are converted into the Asian character according to the transcription rules. During the input, a database is accessed in which the Asian characters are stored and which can be extended by the user.
