do you mean multiple language support with an IM or something similar? There's System -> Administration -> Language Support (aka Language Selector). There's also the SCIM tool as well.

It's even easier: Right click on the upper panel - "add to panel" - "utilities" and you choose keyboard indicator! You can see the indicator on top of your screen. Just click and switch.

...or go to system/preferences/keyboard go to "layouts" add layouts (the languages you want to to use), go to "Layout options" and click on "group shift lock behavior" Mark: alt shift changes group. This way you have the exact function like in Windows! Good luck.

Can you help with this problem?
