As you may already know, in Turkey, Turkish people are using the Latin alphabet just like English, but with a few differences. For example, they do not use x, w and q. 

On the other hand, they use a few additional letters.

I would like to share the different letters that are being used in Turkish and how we can type them in a document should we need to edit a Turkish document.

For a better understanding, please find below a Turkish keyboard first. Those are the main and most common 6 letters.

Now, how we can type them?

1- When we have internet connection: 

This is one of the easiest ways to type those letters as we can simply press the letter and then copy paste to wherever we want.

2- Without internet connection we can use ASCII codes: 

IMPORTANT: Please remove the space between "&" and "#" when using the codes.
(To insert an ASCII character, press and hold down ALT while typing the character code in MS Word.)

Ç "& #199;" Capital c-cedilla

ç "& #231;"  Lowercase c-cedilla

Ğ "& #286;"  Capital g-breve

ğ "& #287;"  Lowercase g-breve

İ "& #304;"  Capital i-dotted

ı "& #305;"  Lowercase i-dotless

Ö "& #214;"  Capital o-umlaut

ö "& #246;"  Lowercase o-umlaut

Ş "& #350;"  Capital s-cedilla

ş "& #351;"  Lowercase s-cedilla

Ü "& #220;"  Capital u-umlaut

ü "& #252;"  Lowercase u-umlaut

Thank you very much!
