You can create text with accented characters once and after that, your Microsoft Office software will change it automatically using AutoCorrect (I tried this in Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and OneNote).
In this video, I changed the English “e” to an accented one. (Microsoft has a list of what to type to get other characters at the link below the video.)

There’s a little bar at the top of your screen in the Office software. Chances are that you’ve never paid it any attention. I use it all day.
The Quick Access Toolbar (QAT) allows you to add shortcuts to commands you use often. This real quick video shows you how to customize it with commands that are there by default as well as any you choose from the ribbon.
Hope this helps. Feel free to comment and share. #SuiteTuesday
In Microsoft Office, you can quickly type international characters one by one, or set up AutoCorrect to do it automatically. And when you set this up in Word, for example, it’ll work across the other software.
This video only shows you how to type the alpha e with an accent. Once you’re clear on how to do it, use this list of keyboard shortcuts from Microsoft for a lot more. http://bit.ly/1GBa5Iy
In addition to the tips in the video and this list, you can also insert international characters using symbols. In Word, click the Insert menu, Symbol, More Symbols. But I like quick and easy…set it and forget it.
