    Here is a thread hoping to collect opinions on what a possible AZERTY layout should look like on the Pro1.
    Attached is a picture of my faithful Nokia E7 AZERTY.

    Basically on an AZERTY keyboard, beyond the basic layout changes, one expects the following characters to be readily available:
    é
    è
    ç
    à
    Optionally: ê
    On top of that there is an extra modifier key enabling the following characters:
    ê
    ô
    â
    ë
    ä
    ö
    ï
    ü
    … and so on.

    On a standard AZERTY keyboard this is done by making digit keys available through shift modifier.

    It seems that a “Scandinavian Qwerty” layout is on the way. We can espect that other layouts will come soon after the official launch. But again, a “QwertY-US International” layout would have been a better option than QwertZ for a first product launch as it covers in a unique layout all common languages (based on latin characters) with all the accents/characters available only on some languages).

    I still prefer the “QwertY-FR” variant as described on http://marin.jb.free.fr/qwerty-fr/ because it just adds the missing french characters (and some others) on a standard Qwerty-US layout. (The daily use is very easy on a standard keyboard, try it!). So I think that the software part may be easy to implement on the regular “Pro1 Qwerty” as it not requires any move or addition of key.

    Other options for french are :

    https://qwerty-lafayette.org/
    http://bepo.fr/
    (and, of course, AZERTY)
