What is Vietkey?
Vietkey was developed in 1991 and released in 1997 by Vietkey Group, a company based in Vietnam and founded by Dang Minh Tuan, a young engineer at the Ministry of Defense at that time. This software is designed to type Vietnamese and some other languages in the world.
The program was first offered as free software and later commercialized alongside other company products. Vietkey supports Vietnamese, English, French, German and Russian. There is a version compatible with the Linux operating system.
Dr. Dang Minh Tuan is one of the proponents of developing a popular character encoding for typing Vietnamese. Vietkey provided Unicode support in 1997 and refined it into more efficient software in 2000.
