English and Mongolian Keyboard Layout

Mongolian (Cyrillic) is supported directly by the Windows operating system from XP (but you will need to change the default settings for some programs, eg Notebook).

This site has the details: Windows Keyboard Layouts. It is useful to print the keyboard layout and place in front of the keyboard as a guide for which keys to press.  Alternatively, stickers can be placed on the keys with two languages.
