  • easy writing in a chosen language in any place on the Internet 
  • automatic insertion of diacritic marks, spelling correction, word completion
  • saving corrections (the possibility to add new words and names to a dictionary)
  • transliteration (a type of conversion of one script to another based on phonetic similarity, eg. Latin alphabet letters are converted to signs that sound similar in the target language; transliteration offers approximate phonetic mapping; one can type approximate pronunciation using the Latin alphabet and transliteration enables finding the most appropriate equivalents)
