Tajik standard and phonetic keyboard layouts for macOS (Mac OS X, OS X). Tajik phonetic keyboard layouts for Windows.

Overview

Recently I started to work on a Tajik online dictionary which required a lot of typing so I had to come up with way to use my Latin keyboard to type in Tajik. Based on a Russian phonetic layout I created the Tajik phonetic layout for macOS. Later upon a couple of requests I added the standard Tajik layout as well. In an effort to simplify and standardize the layouts, I created a bundle that contains standard and phonetic layouts for macOS and a separate installation package that contains Tajik phonetic layouts for Windows. I’m very hopeful you will find them useful.

The layout source files are available in this repository, feel free to download and reconfigure them per your personal preference. macOS version was created with Ukelete (http://scripts.sil.org/ukelele), the Windows version with The Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/globalization/keyboardlayouts.aspx).

Installation on macOS (Mac OS X, OS X)

  1. Download the installation package for the layout you want:
  2. Run the installatiion package and follow the instructions.
  3. Navigate to System Preferences -> Keyboard -> Input Sources, click +, find the layout in Tajik category, select the installed layout, and click Add.

Done! You can now choose the layout from the list of available input sources and type in Tajik.

Installation on Windows

  1. Download the installation package for the layout you want:
  2. Unpack the zip package, run setup.exe, and follow the instructions.
  3. Open the language bar settings and set the layout as default, if necessary.

NOTE: On Windows 10, you might have to enable the language bar in the Control Panel -> Regional and Language Settings.

Done! You can now choose the layout from the list of available input sources and type in Tajik.
