Google have just pushed in a bunch of input tools to their Gmail client, which will allow users to access a new variety of languages and layout tools. With these new features, Gmail has the proud ability to brag it supports typing in 75 languages.




These new tools include over 100 virtual keyboards, transliteration and IMEs (input method editors). You can now swap between languages with a single click once you've enabled the tools under Language in your Gmail settings.




Once you've flicked the switch on input tools, you'll see a new Input Tools button that will appear in your toolbar, where you can toggle these tools on and off. Virtual keyboards and IMEs is a move from Google that will see many more flock to the web-based e-mail client, and will see better use of keyboards instead of having to get an expensive multilanguage keyboard setup or overlay. Nice move, Google.
