I need to write some text in Spanish and I have an English PC and keyboard. Could I type in Spanish if I changed my keyboard to a Spanish one or would I have to change any settings on my machine. I would appreciate any help thank you.

If you simply need the accents and symbols for some of the letters, Windows has many of them built in. Here is a list of those available.

Simply hold ALT key and enter the relevent number for each symbol.

All done to confuse.
Rather depends on your typing skills.
Almost better to be a pick and poker rather than a touch typist in this instance.
Changing region setting - is OK but you sill have a QWERTY keyboard - is a Spanish keyboard the same?
Typing on an American qwerty when you want English is bar enough.
If you are using a word variant try this.
Hammer out the text on your English qwerty then where you need a symbol go to 'Insert/Symbol.
Which will put a panel on the screen - put cursor in the appropriate spot, and click on the symbol in the panel.

Or use something like this click here type your text in English and then choose translate to Spanish.

If you Google for it you should find free translator programs are available.

Or on eBay - click here Easy Translater 4 is a brilliant program.
