and if you want to, you can set your keyboard to be a german one and your menus to english - I have english menus and a french keyboard so I can get the accents right

J. Nelson was talking about using a Fire. My reply related to that question.

Not with the old Kindle Keyboard

J. Nelson, if you need to type the "e" with the umlaut, press and hold the "e" and the other choices will appear.

I know this thread is over a year old - I'm a little late to the game, but I just found this:

h.ownby - Good news! The Kindle Fire does actually support umlauts. You'll just need to tap and hold on the letter, then a small menu will appear above it with other options, including umlauts. Hope this helps!

Haben Sie noch eine Antwort? I too am looking to write text on my Kindle Fire and would like to have umlaut characters instead of having to write the vowel followed by an "e"

Those look like they are probably OCR errors.

Interesting question, Schulze. Just this morning I read the word "Fhrer" in an English eBook. It is spelled "Fiihrer."
To make things worse, only a few pages later there is the Czech name Rozalii (is it really Rozal?)

Schulze,

I wouldn't expect that to be too soon. However, this thread may be of interest:

Sorry, guys,
of course I meant: when will I be able to post/write German Umlauts on the Kindle?

On your PC keyboard (not on your Kindle) press and hold the ALT key while typing the following four-digit ASCII Character Codes before releasing the ALT key:

0196 =
0228 =
0203 =
0235 =
0207 =
0239 =
0214 =
0246 =
0220 =
0252 =

I posted those using the Character Map accessory on my computer.

I am German and very VERY happy with my Kindle3. It's a terrific invention.
But when will we be able to post/use German Umlauts?
Or do I have to wait for a native German edition of the Kindle?
