* XKB option ISO_Level3_Shift key is not available in control-center Keyboard panel, one needs to use 'gnome-tweak-tool' to enable 3rd level chooser key.

Fedora features a variety of software which is translated in [http://translate.fedoraproject.org/languages many languages] . For a list of languages refer to the [http://translate.fedoraproject.org/module/anaconda translation statistics]  for '''Anaconda''', which is one of the core software applications in Fedora.

* The shortcut key {{key press|Ctrl}}-{{key press|Shift}}-{{key press|e}} can be customized with <code>ibus-setup</code>

* The language of emoji annotation can be selected with <code>ibus-setup</code> besides English
==== Language Support Installation ====
+
* The emoji font can be selected with <code>ibus-setup</code> (You might like '''Noto Color Emoji''' font)
To install additional language support from the '''Languages''' group, use ''Applications > Add/Remove Software'', or run this command:
+
* All '''IBus''' engines can use the emoji feature from the panel
 
+
* The emoji dialog can output emojis with keyboard without mouse for CLI users
<pre>su -c 'yum groupinstall <language>-support'
+
* Now {{key press|Ctrl}}-{{key press|Shift}}-{{key press|e}} is available in non-GNOME desktops since '''GNOME''' uses the own panel indicator instead of ''IBus'' ''GTK'' panel
</pre>
+
* <code>ibus emoji</code> command is available for '''GNOME''' desktop and the shortcut of the command can be registered with gnome-control-center by manual

In the command above, <code><language></code> is one of <code>assamese</code>, <code>bengali</code>, <code>chinese</code>, <code>gujarati</code>, <code>hindi</code>, <code>japanese</code>, <code>kannada</code>, <code>korean</code>, <code>malayalam</code>, <code>marathi</code>, <code>oriya</code>, <code>punjabi</code>, <code>sinhala</code>, <code>tamil</code>, <code>telegu</code>, <code>thai</code>, and so on.

SCIM users upgrading from earlier releases of Fedora are strongly urged to install <code>scim-bridge-gtk</code>.  This application works well with third-party C++ applications linked against older versions of <code>libstdc++</code>.
 
 
 
To add SCIM support to input a particular language, install <code>scim-lang-<lang></code>, where <code><lang></code> is one of <code>assamese</code>, <code>bengali</code>, <code>chinese</code>, <code>dhivehi</code>, <code>farsi</code>, <code>gujarati</code>, <code>hindi</code>, <code>japanese</code>, <code>kannada</code>, <code>korean</code>, <code>latin</code>, <code>malayalam</code>, <code>marathi</code>, <code>oriya</code>, <code>punjabi</code>, <code>sinhalese</code>, <code>tamil</code>, <code>telugu</code>, <code>thai</code>, or <code>tibetan</code>.
 
 
 
==== Transifex ====
 
[https://fedorahosted.org/transifex/ Transifex]  is Fedora's online tool to facilitate contributing translations to projects hosted on remote and disparate version control systems.  Many of the core packages use Transifex to receive translations from numerous contributors.
 
 
 
Through a combination of [http://translate.fedoraproject.org/ new Web tools] , community growth, and better processes, translators can contribute directly to any upstream project through one translator-oriented Web interface. Developers of projects with no existing translation community can easily reach out to Fedora's established community for translations. In turn, translators can reach out to numerous projects related to Fedora to easily contribute translations.

== New Packages ==
 
=== Fonts ===
 
=== Fonts ===
Fonts for most languages are installed by default on the desktop to give good default language coverage.
+
* adobe-source-serif-pro-fonts : Source Serif Pro is a set of OpenType fonts to complement the Source Sans Pro family.
 
+
* oflb-coval-fonts : Derivation of other free of charge fonts
=== Input Methods ===
+
* astigmatic-grand-hotel-fonts - Script retro style fonts
Input methods for many languages are now installed by default, which allows turning on the default input method system and immediately having the default input methods for most languages available and bring default installs in line with Fedora Live.
+
* typetype-molot-fonts - Display sans-serif fonts
 
+
=== Libraries ===
It is now possible to start and stop the of Input Methods in GTK applications during runtime thanks to the new <code>imsettings</code> framework.  The <code>GTK_IM_MODULE</code> environment variable is no longer needed by default but can still be used to override the <code>imsettings</code>.
+
* sharpfont : Cross-platform FreeType bindings for .NET
 
+
* libXfont2 - X11 font support library
==== im-chooser ====
+
* nodejs-os-locale : To get the system locale
With the new <code>imsettings</code> framework, <code>im-chooser</code> can now start and stop Input Method usage dynamically on the GNOME Desktop.
+
* nodejs-y18n : The bare-bones internationalization library used by yargs
 
 
Input methods only start by default on desktops running in an Asian locale.  The current locale list is: <code>as</code>, <code>bn</code>, <code>gu</code>, <code>hi</code>, <code>ja</code>, <code>kn</code>, <code>ko</code>, <code>ml</code>, <code>mr</code>, <code>ne</code>, <code>or</code>, <code>pa</code>, <code>si</code>, <code>ta</code>, <code>te</code>, <code>th</code>, <code>ur</code>, <code>vi</code>, <code>zh</code>.  Use <code>im-chooser</code> via ''System -> Preferences -> Personal -> Input Method'' to enable or disable Input method usage on your desktop.
 
 
 
==== SCIM hotkeys ====
 
SCIM now only defines trigger hotkeys for Asian languages
