Image from store Umlauter: automatically add Umlauts
Description from store Try typing something like "Kuehe" in a textbox followed by a space or period to see it corrected! Useful when typing German on US-keyboards. Requires access to websites to correct typing in input boxes. All data is processed locally and is not sent to remote servers! On computer systems that don't support them, German words like "Erklärung" are often written as "Erklaerung" to avoid the use of diacritic letters. Though this is readable, it looks odd. An easy solution would be to replace all two letter combinations to their proper Umlaut-form and though this fixes 100% of potential words, there are too many false positives (for example the word "neue" would never be written "neü"). This project uses machine learning to predict if a substitution should be made.

    Hallo, es wäre nicht schlecht, wenn dies auch in die anderen Richtung gehen würde. Also von "ä" auf "ae" konvertieren sollte es am besten auch können, da man es dann in beiden Fällen nutzen kann, wie z.Bsp. bei Einträgen von einem Web Tool in die AD. Dann muss man das nicht immer händisch eingeben. Wenn man das 30-40 Mal am Tag machen muss, dann wird man wahnsinnig. ;) Wäre nett, wenn Du es noch mit einbauen könntest. Danke schon mal =)
