Hi Erik,

This is interesting, but I'm not sure I'm getting this. So far I only
played around in the linked example page. As far as I understand this
plugin maps keyboard inputs to different chars. This worked with the
"Capitalize" language but that one is not really useful, I guess. So I
tried the "German" one, but since I use a German keyboard I didn't
really see any difference.

So could you give a short intro on what this actually does and when
it's useful? My guess would be that I would use this if I use a
keyboard mapping/system language that is different from the language I
want to write in and am not able to change this setting?
