Speed of data entry on foreign-language projects may greatly be improved by setting up an alternate keyboard that supports the language.

For Polish I recommend the Polish Programmers keyboard as it is basically a standard QWERTY keyboard with the Polish characters entered by use of the RIGHT-ALT+Letter combinations. This key is called AltGR (or Green Key, as it is color coded on the keyboards that ship this way).

AltGr Result
a ą
c ć
e ę
l ł
n ń
o ó
s ś
z ż
x ź

To get the capital letters, simply press shift, and the appropriate AltGr combination


To set this up see the following article
