        How is this still still not your priority? After more than 2 years! Satisfy your CUSTOMERS, please?

      • GabrielGabriel commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Planned for over 2 years now? Seriously? Is this SO difficult to implement?

      • Karsten RønningenKarsten Rønningen commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Jeg får stadig vekk påminnelse om at jeg ikke har valgt noen språk selv om jeg har gjort det, mitt språk er norsk. Å ø å æ. Strever med å finne disse tre bokstavene.

        Why is this taking so long? Do comment on the progress, please. At least we will know that you are working on it or not. Otherwise we should be looking into alternatives.

        I agree with some of the previous comments:
        kn8 :))
        Devs: Just take the dictionary and transliterate all the words to ascii characters. Then you can offer this functionality as a separate dictionary. Should be easy enough.

      • samsam commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        this would be great, real time-saver, i hope i's going to be implemented soon (after such a long time). already voted.

        great solution kn8 :))

        but this is sms app related too, I can disable these characters in sms app ( cm11 )

      • MartinMartin commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Really surprised that this issue is around for so long and 2 years planned for implementation. Incredibly horrible service to customers. Will have to spread this.

      • MartinMartin commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Having diacritics in SMS shortens in some countries the length of SMS to only 70 symbols. So I always have to manually remove diacritics. Extremely annoying. Made me switch to Slidelt which has this option!

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        So, Swiftkey team, be polite and answer. I have the same issue with the diacritics in some East European languages.

      • JonasJonas commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Hmm so much needed. Have to switch to normal keyboard everytime I text someone.

      • Celestin EmanuelCelestin Emanuel commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        After so many years of doing nothing, I suppose that there are some money "interests" along the line, with many happy operators charging users with 3-4 sms instead of 1 sms.

      • AnonymousAnonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        1780 votes, 170 comments, 2 years latter: still "planned for development".
        Planning too much?

      • DusanzvDusanzv commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        It is very disappointing that nothing has been done about this issue so long since it was raised and since you indicated that is it is planned to be solved. It is sort of a misleading and deceiving.
        Otherwise, it is a superb app and it is a pity to be this dysfunctional for so many non-English speaking people using it.

      • AnonymousAnonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Great! Waiting for this option since I bought apps. I love SwiftKey. Greetings for the team. Best keyboard for me! :)

      • LeBauxLeBaux commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Adaptxt has this option and it is really the only one reason why I am preferring it over swiftkey.
