How do you do a word search in original language using the keyboard (not cut and paste)? I have UBS4 opened, tap the search, and when I type on the search field for word search, it is always in English.

Thanks

In the iOS Accordance, Roman letters appear in the search box. If you type in the transliteration equivalent, it will work. For example, ihsous will find the Greek work for Jesus in its various inflected forms in the UBS4 (and other Greek texts).

Michael is right, that's one way to do it. However, you can also activate the Greek and Hebrew keyboards on your idevice (Settings:General:Keyboard:Keyboards) and use them to type in your Greek and Hebrew search terms. Can be easier than remembering the keyboard. You can still enter search commands using the menus. This is what I usually do for Hebrew, less so for Greek since the alphabets are so similar..

Good point Ken. For iOS it may be easier to switch, though for Greek I am so used to the Accordance mapping that using the English keyboard is pretty simple for the iOS (and Desktop). I recently learned the Israeli keyboard, so switching for Hebrew makes sense.
