Na Frank,

That should be a nice and simple keydown card message

on keydown k
  if the hilite of btn "typeGerman" then
     get chartranlate[k]
    if it is empty then pass keydown
      put it into the selection
    end if
  else pass keydown
end keydown

something like that... (not tested, from the hairloosing top of my head)

This way you dont need to type extra stuff but you do need to click the
button on and off to choose what you type... Maybe you could also
use the option or control key to switch modes...

Another approach is to typre something like /u and later do a replace
for each /a or /u into the letters you want...

Hope that helps
