BigElectricKat, if you don't have an Umlaut or any other letter with an accent mark, there are two really easy ways of getting it. You can cut and paste the letter or word from a previous post on here. "Spätzle" with the Umlaut is used by a previous poster. If that isn't possible Google the word without the accent follow by the word Wikipedia, e.g. Spatzle Wikipedia. The article will almost always include the spelling of the word in the original language. This avoids computer technicalities.
