This is the case with the German language. However, there are ways
to enter German umlauts with us_intl layout (digraph).

With Microsoft Windows as an exception, it is possible to switch
keyboard layouts on keyboard shortcuts.

However, when I am coding, I am only using English variable names
and comments. So most of the time, I am happy with 7-bit ASCII

If you do not code nor use strange environments like LaTeX, you
might as well ignore my comments about tech-savvy people which was
maybe a bit too general.

Yes, you are absolutely right. So "tech-savvy" is probably too
unspecific as a term. However, "coders" seems to be narrow as well.
Maybe you can think of a term in between? ;-)
