Follow these steps to install a Bulgarian keyboard on your Mac OS X computer.

You do not need a physical Bulgarian keyboard, this works on any keyword such as a standard QWERTY keyboard.

You will be able to easily switch back and forth between this and your current keyboard.

We will install a phonetic Bulgarian keyboard, which maps Bulgarian letters to the sounds of English letters. With this keyboard active, you will get a Bulgarian "Đ”" when you press the English letter key "D", etc.

You can also use a virtual Bulgarian keyboard on screen (see below).

  1. Open System Preferences (e.g. Click on Apple menu then on System Preferences…)
  2. Click on Language & Text
  3. Click on Input Sources tab
  4. Select Bulgarian

To show a virtual Bulgarian keyboard on screen:

  1. Open System Preferences
  2. Click on Keyboard
  3. Check the "Show Keyboard & Character Viewer in menu bar" checkbox
  4. Click on the flag that is in the menu bar (right side) and select "Show Keyboard Viewer"
