Yes...that is absolutely correct ;-)
To change languages on the Mac OS X 10.4.9
1. Go to System Preferences
2. Click on International
3. Click on Input Menu
4. Put a check mark by the languages you might want later
5. Put a check mark next to: show input menu in menu bar
6. Then close System Preferences.
You will find a flag up high in the menu bar after that and if you
click on the flag, there is a long list of the language keyboards you
chose, and you can switch from keyboard to keyboard...
It is amazing! I copied Chinese yesterday, from SignPuddle 1.0 to
and I type with a Danish keyboard all the time...only problem is you
have to remember to switch back to English when you are typing English!
